From Newport Public Works
The Newport Public Works Department is applying a dust abatement material to many unpaved roads in town. The product, “Dustac Road Binder”, has been in use by the US Forest Service for more than 40 years.
Dustac Road Binder is derived from trees, and is similar in consistency to maple syrup or molasses. It is water soluble, and readily washes off vehicles and other surfaces. It doesn’t harm vegetation or wildlife, and is not a skin or eye irritant.
More detailed information may be found via an internet search for “Dustac”.
