7. Who is the vendor that can provide dust control on my county road?

Currently, Scotwood Industries, Inc. is the only approved provider for dust control on Boone County roads. Contact them for pricing.

General customer service phone numbers and website:

Registration Deadlines & Application Process

Boone County citizens can register with Scotwood through May 3rd for dust control and that application will begin after June 1st.

Boone County citizens can call Scotwood Industries directly to register for dust control for their road through May 3rd. Scotwood then sends the list of registered clients to BCRB, where we will prepare the road for dust control by grading it before the application process begins. Scotwood starts the application process after June 1st.

After May 3rd, BCRB is no longer coordinating Scotwood Industries and instead the citizen is responsible for contacting Scotwood and scheduling the dust control treatment. The citizen may call BCRB and request the road to be graded before the application process begins, but it is not guaranteed that the road will be prepared before treatment due to other higher priority projects. BCRB suggests you call for dust control before the May 3rd deadline to guarantee your road will be prepared before treatment.

Important Facts to Know

  • The citizen is responsible for "flagging" the area that needs to have dust control.
  • There is a minimum of 300ft of gravel road necessary for dust control.
