Whereas Chickasaw County does not provide dust control services on any county
road, citizens and landowners are, however, allowed to apply dust control
materials by permit from the Chickasaw County Engineer's Office on any road at
their own expense.
The only materials approved for use on the roads are calcium chloride,
magnesium chloride, and lignin sulfonate. USED MOTOR OIL IS NOT AN APPROVED
MATERIAL and shall not be applied to county road surfaces.
Upon receipt of a dust control permit the county will blade and shape the
indicated site prior to dust control placement to provide for a smooth road
surface. After the dust control material has been applied, the county will
refrain from blading/graveling the treated area unless, IN THE OPINION OF THE
COUNTY ENGINEER, it has become rough as to constitute a hazard to traffic. The
owner shall maintain the treated area and repair any roughness that may
develop. The county shall not be liable for the cost of any new application
made necessary by such blading.
Whereas the county needs to maintain gravels across Chickasaw County, any
traffic as a result of normal spot rock and frost boil patchwork is considered
normal operations during the course of the year.
Whereas the county places contract rock once a year on various gravel roads
across Chickasaw County. Contract rock is considered to be extra ordinary
travel on Chickasaw County Roads. The contractor placing contract rock will be
responsible for maintaining fugitive dust at locations considered to be the
main traveled haul roads from the quarry as designated by Chickasaw County
Engineer during the time of contract rock. The contractor may utilize any of
the approved materials listed above or water trucks may be used during hauling
times. These designated main haul roads may vary from year to year. Once
contract rock is completed the landowner is again permitted to apply dust
control materials on any road at their own expense.
Whereas the landowner wanting to place dust control prior to contract rock
hauling does so at the landowners own risk. Any costs associated with
re-application of dust control materials after contract hauling is done, shall
be at the landowner's expense.
This policy is valid for the time period of May 1 to October 15. Before or after
this time period the county will routinely maintain the rock surface by
