City Issues Dust Reminder -- Pre-Wet Parking Lots Before Sweeping
City reminds folks to please pre-wet surfaces before sweeping drive areas and parking lots. Use of leaf blowers on commercial parking lots, prohibited.
In 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.
