Dust

Dust and sand drift can be a nuisance to the community. Most problems with dust and sand drift arise from subdivision developments, building sites, brick cartage trucks, land clearing, industrial properties, road works, excavation sites, landfill sites and storms. Dust control is particularly important in dry weather due to the increase in winds, drying out rates, water conservation measures and the reduction in grasses.

Property owners or occupiers of a premise have the responsibility to prevent sand or dust causing a nuisance, whether it affects private land or Shire land, such as verges, footpaths and roads.

The following measures can be used when building or developing land to prevent dust and drift sand:

  • wind fencing
  • apply water
  • hydro mulching
  • chemical stabilisation/binding agents
  • covering all piles of sand or other building material.​
