Community Dust


Is visibility poor due to an increase in dust particulates?

Has there been an increase in complaints surrounding air quality or respiratory issues

Are vehicles raising dust on dry days?

What can you do?

  1. When you are driving on an unpaved road, drive slowly - especially when operating an ATV.
  2. When hauling dirt, cover your load to prevent spills.
  3. Present concerns to your local community and tribal councils. Ask the council to contact the DEC to let us know of the problems.
  4. If conditions are dusty, try to limit your exposure by staying indoors or away from dusty areas.
