  • Dust Control will only proceed if there is sufficient interest.
  • Minimum order 120 meters.
  • Wheatland County applies a double application for all purchased calcium dust control applications.

Calcium Chloride

Calcium chloride is saltwater brine. Once calcium chloride has been applied twice it will typically last the season under normal conditions.

Deadline for Applications

  • First Round: Application deadline is May 17, 2024
    (Weather permitting, application will occur starting May 21)
  • Second round:  Application deadline is June 7, 2024
    (Weather permitting, application will occur starting June 10)


  • County roads $6.19/meter plus GST


Oil is crude oil mixed with gravel; it is then spread and packed. Oil should last three or more years under normal conditions. Because oil is easier to mix and will last longer if the weather is hot and dry, the county waits until midsummer to apply.

Deadline for Applications

  • Application deadline is July 5, 2024
    (Weather permitting, application will occur during July)


  • County roads $32.68/meter plus GST (New Application)
  • Gravel Secondary Highway $35.68/meter plus GST (New Application)


Please complete the application form below and submit it with a completed credit card authorization form.
