Southern Colorado Dust Control – Keeping Roads Safe
The climate and soil types in Southern Colorado are varied and diverse. That can make Southern Colorado dust control a challenge for other companies, but not Desert Mountain Corporation. Travel safety for tourists and residents alike is a major concern for the roads and streets departments state wide. Some communities and counties are just using water to control blowing dust and stabilize roads, but that won’t work long term. In fact, that approach could cost your roads department more.
Dust Control Products
The products from Desert Mountain Corporation for dust control are eco-friendly and non-toxic – not harmful to humans, animals or plants when properly applied. And our sales and application teams will work with you to ensure that the road or lot is properly prepped and follow up maintenance is performed. We offer the following products to meet your dust control and soil stabilization needs:
RoadSaver – a high-grade magnesium chloride product that performs well in most soil types. It is a hygroscopic compound that attracts moisture from the air and resists evaporation.

Do You Have a Dust Control Plan?
A detailed dust control plan from Desert Mountain Corporation using environmentally friendly products will ensure that the important, highly traveled areas in Southern Colorado like these are not causing heath and safety issues:
- bus routes
- rural main roads
- parking lots
- access roads
- construction yards
All of these critical transportation areas are made safer with Southern Colorado dust control solutions – making it safe for Springfield, Trinidad, Walsenburg, Durango – the surrounding communities, local residents and visitors. National forests, state and local government agencies have to make sure that the thousands of miles of dirt roads, parking lots and equipment yards that they are responsible for don’t cause health or safety issues. Bureau of Land Management and Forestry departments, City and county road departments, landfills and water treatment plants are but a few of the government agencies that oversee unpaved roads in Southern Colorado. And private companies need to ensure that unpaved access roads and parking areas don’t cause a problem with fugitive dust.

By working with a company experienced in dust control planning, Southern Colorado private and government agencies will reduce dust control issues to meet or exceed pollution standards. Dust control and soil stabilization products from Desert Mountain Corporation will benefit rural and metro communities by improving:

- Working and travel conditions

- Dust related employee illnesses
More Than Water May Be Needed
There are agencies that believe that dust can be controlled and roads can be stabilized with just a water truck. A short-term project can benefit from a water truck directly in the work area, but if the project or event is going to have a lot of traffic in and out or run for weeks or months, applying an environmentally friendly dust control solution will make financial and environmental sense in the long run. For rural high traffic areas like bus routes, main county roads, fairgrounds, or busy parking lots, more stabilization and control is called for and we have products to provide it.
