Yakima County starts work on dust control
YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Yakima County is working to control dust by spraying down gravel roads, but there's not enough money to do as much as the past.

The county will treat nearly 260 miles of gravel roads this year. That's 70 miles less than last year. Crews started working in the Moxee area on Tuesday. Most of the roads that won't be treated are in White Swan.

"It really helps in every way on this road,” said Jack Eversole. “It's not a very long road but they take really good care of it and it does help."

This project should take two months to complete. Crews spray about ten miles a day, four days a week.
