The Board has approved the use of the mag chloride dust control solution in a test area. This is similar to the product used by Summit County in South Fork, Smith & Morehouse and Thousand Peaks. This solution is sprayed onto the roads, and minimizes or eliminates dust.
As many of you know, this year has been extremely dry and there has been a lot more dust at Beaver Springs. In addition, there has been a lot more wind this year. Dust can cause allergies and other health conditions for animals and people. Dust also makes quite a mess in homes and vehicles. By using this solution we are attempting one more way of making Beaver Springs a more beautiful and enjoyable community for all.
The Board has agreed to test this solution from the gate to the corral, because it is the most used stretch of our roads. In the Fall, the Board will send out a survey to get feedback from everyone in the community.
On Tuesday, August 3rd at 6AM the company will begin the process of preparing the roads for the dust control solution. This will begin approximately at 8AM. This dust control solution can cause damage to cars – similar to salt put on the roads in winter. It is recommended that you DO NOT drive on the roads for 24 hours. If you have to drive on the roads during the initial 24 hours then you should not go over 5 miles per/hr and rinse your vehicle and undercarriage immediately after. After the initial 24 hours, the solution should not have a negative impact on vehicles.
