Clearwater County is accepting applications for our 2019 Dust Suppression Program
3-Year Dust Suppression - Contract Holder Price $2338.00, not including G.S.T. (Full cost $4676.00)
The County will supply dust suppression for a distance of 500 feet (150 m) in front of a farmstead, residence or business on municipal road allowance.
Under current policy, the cost of one application is paid 50% (1/2) by the contract holder and 50% (1/2) by the County.
This cost covers the material and supplies required to apply the initial dust suppression and any repairs necessary to maintain the integrity and ride-ability during the warranty period.
Maintenance is performed on an as required basis as determined by County staff. "Active” Dust Suppressions will be inspected on a yearly basis to determine what maintenance is required, if any.
"Inactive” (not covered under a 3-year agreement) dust suppressions requiring minor maintenance will be repaired at the discretion of the County. Dust suppressions that require major maintenance and/or are deemed unsafe for public travel, will be eliminated and reverted back to the original gravel condition.
Maintenance will vary from hand patching potholes with cold mix to scarifying and relaying the Dust Suppression. Winter maintenance will be carried out as deemed necessary.
Clearwater County offers two (2) methods of payment for the Client: a lump sum option due at the time of signing the agreement or the option to make equal payments over a 3-year term. The 3 year payment option is not available for the seasonal dust suppression program.
