Road Dust Control Products

I am moving into a house in a week or two. The house the second to the last one off a 750' dirt road. I have a 300 gal water tank that I want to use for dust control purposes. I have heard of chemicals you can put in with the water that will bind with the loose dirt and form a hard layer. The road is currently mainly base rock and fine dust. Anyone have any experience with these? Are they worth the money? How frequently do you have to do it?

calcium chloride will hold moisture in the dirt longer.

having lived on dirt roads ranging from 1-5 miles long in one of the dustiest places in the US for my entire life (save 2-3 years) this idea is absolutely ludicrous to me.

I was thinking the same thing. If you don't like a dusty car, just rinse it off when you get home, I'm pretty sure it'll take less than 300 gallons.

Slow as you do everything, it's not like you'd kick up any dust anyway.

The County puts something on ours that works really good. I'll see if I can find out what it is.

Dude named Russell Bliss made a killing spraying waste oil on roads to keep the dust down around here. 'Course it was laced with Dioxin, but at least it wasn't dusty

I was simply pointing him in the direction of what he was looking for. He might be more worried about dust billowing through his yard or neighbors yard. Maybe he likes to hang his laundry out...who knows.

"Approved calcium chloride and application services for dust control on selected gravelroads in York County ,Bid #2008"

Pittsburg county Oklahoma puts down a pine oil mixture that works really well. They spray twice a year about a 100' either side of you home to keep the dust out

Calcium chloride is actually hygroscopic and will draw moisture from the air to keep the road "wet".

If the grader cuts it very much, it will diminish the affects.

After a couple years of applications, it soaks in deeper and lesser amounts can be applied.

There is a granual application as well but I prefer liguid.

I know there are products out there that work really well. I have driven down quarry roads that have truck traffic all day long and not a hint of dust and they had not been recently watered. Its just a matter of finding out what they used. I am doing it for a few reasons, cleaner cars, less dust in the house, hanging laundry outside to name a few. Eventually I will get together with the neighbors and see if we can work out a deal to oil the road. But that probably won't happen for a year to two.

Yeah Einstein, I saw that. I hoped it would benefit the OP to hear it from a member with a fully functioning brain. No offense, Sparky.

Try lignin or lignin sulfonate usually sold under a name like Dustac. It usually outlasts oiling and is much cheaper. California Dust Control out of Shafter is who we use.

Bet it smells nice too, like an auto air freshner.
