LAS VEGAS -- Due to expected high winds, Clark County Department of Air Quality officials are advising residents and operators of local construction sites of the possibility of blowing dust Thursday, Nov. 8.

At this time, unhealthy levels of dust are not occurring. As part of the county's dust-control program, air quality officials are sending notices to construction sites in the Las Vegas Valley and other outlying areas in the County asking them to take precautions to prevent blowing dust.

Air Quality officials will continue to monitor conditions and will post an alert on the forecast page of the DAQ website if unhealthy levels actually occur.

Residents are encouraged to call Air Quality’s dust-complaint hotline at (702) 385-DUST to report excessive amounts of blowing dust.

Officials also recommend the following tips to keep dust down:
  • Drive slowly on unpaved roads.
  • Don’t take short cuts across vacant lots.
  • Ride off-road vehicles in approved areas outside the urban Las Vegas Valley.
  • Fence off barren property or cover it with gravel, rock, or desert-friendly landscaping.
