Hot, Dry Conditions and Dust Emissions at CFOs

Posted on June 29, 2021 |

The hot, dry conditions resulting from the historic heat wave hitting Alberta can lead to higher dust emissions at confined feeding operations (CFOs).

The NRCB reminds CFO owners and operators of measures they can take to control dust at their operations. For further information please see the NRCB Dust Control Fact Sheet, as well as this document from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry: Managing Feedlot Pen Dust.

You can also contact an NRCB inspector at the NRCB field office nearest you for more information.
