County offering dust suppression program


In an effort to help the citizens of Warren County suppress the dust on the county maintained roads located near their residence, no private roads,  the Warren County Commission may make a dust suppression program available. The experience in the past with a dust suppression product shows that the dust suppression decreases with time and traffic. Each application of the product has an added effect, after several years of application, a year may be skipped.

Citizens can apply for the dust suppression program at the Warren County Clerk’s Office in Warrenton at the Administration Building. The citizens will be responsible for paying for the dust suppression product and its application fee at the rate of $1.60 per foot of continuous roadway at the time of applying for the program. A minimum of 200 feet of roadway per application will be required. Also please note that the deadline to submit applications is May 1. No late applications will be accepted.

After the county has received enough requests within a reasonable geographical area, with payment, to equal a load of product, the checks for the program will be deposited. The length of road to be sprayed will be marked by the applicant and checked by the Warren County Road Department. If the applicant does not mark the road, the road department will mark the road. Warren County will prepare the road surface for the application.

Warren County will not be responsible for excess runoff of the product.

The Warren County Road Department reserves the right to grade the road after application if they deem such grading is necessary.

Warren County does not warranty the effectiveness of the dust suppression program, nor are we responsible for the effects of runoff.
