Blowing Dust and Gravel with a Leaf BlowerIn order to preserve our great air quality this spring, the City requires that surfaces be pre-wet before sweeping, or swept using a self-contained unit with collection bag. The use of leaf-blowers or similar units to blow dust and gravel on parking lots are prohibited, as this creates an air quality issue as well as a traffic safety issue when visibility of nearby roadways is reduced.  Please be respectful of community health and safety, and call the Soldotna Roads Department at 262-4672 with any questions.
