Road Dust Control

Naturist family walking on road

Today we applied a solution of Magnesium Chloride to minimize road dust. We did this last year and it was very effective. As anybody who visited Bare Oaks in the last week has certainly noticed, we also did a lot of work this week on the main road to improve drainage.

About Magnesium Chloride:

Unlike other dust control agents (e.g. Calcium Chloride) it:

  • Generally does not cause skin irritation
  • Is less toxic than regular salt or baking soda
  • Does not damage plants (except if sprayed directly on the leaves -- like any fertilizer)
  • Will last the entire season with only one application

An MSDS sheet is available in the office for anyone interested. The GHS Classifications are:

  • Physical: Not Hazardous
  • Health: Not Hazardous
  • Environment: Not Hazardous
