Dust Control

Las Crucens know that living in the desert means having to deal with dust, especially when seasonal winds blow in the Southwest. Not only is dust flying but the winds erode land. The City of Las Cruces has soil and wind erosion ordinances that address dust issues - known as fugitive dust. 

The City’s Community Development department also works with residents, businesses and property developers in reducing the amount of fugitive dust present in the community, and partners with other agencies to address health awareness, air quality control, erosion control and inspections. Report dust pollution at Ask the City.
