An updated version of Policy E.18: Dust Control (calcium-based products) was approved by Council on March 29, 2023 and is now in effect. The policy rewrite balances the safety of public-use roadways with roadway safety, fiscal prudence, and fairness to residents who don’t utilize MD dust control services.

To residents who use this program, these changes result in an extended application time window; costs for late applications and reapplications will be borne by the respective landowner; and certain roadways will no longer qualify for no-cost dust abatement services. The MD as a whole will benefit from a sensible and sustainable dust control policy that balances safety concerns with the need for practicality and fiscal prudence.

To ensure pricing is reflective of current market conditions, the cost of subsidized dust control will be reviewed every three years when the MD reviews its purchasing agreement with the supplier.

To review the new dust control policy, or to request a dust abatement application on roadways adjacent to your property, please visit the Dust Control Program section of the website.

2023 Application Deadline

Applications must be received by the MD by Friday April 28, 2023 at 4:30 p.m.
