Residential dust signs for construction may be required by the Clark County Air Quality Management Board. Clark County Nevada is very concerned about the air quality in the Southern Nevada desert and has taken steps to regulate the amount of dust that can be made when doing construction. These regulations require dust education classes, residential dust signs and commercial dust signs and other specific measures to keep dirt out of the air.
Residential dust signs come in two different sizes. The 4ft x 4ft dust control sign is for construction projects that are less than 10 acres and a 4ft x 8ft dust control sign is required for construction projects larger than 10 acres. Residential dust signs need certain information on them as required by the Clark County Air Quality Management Board and the text needs to be certain sizes as well. Information such as permit number, expiration of the permit date, who is constructing the residence, name of project, etc. are just some of the important information required by law. Failure to comply with the requirement can lead to fines, work stoppages, etc.
Residential dust signs are not expensive and probably one of the cheapest items on a new residence. The cost of a 4ft x 4ft dust control sign is less than one hundred dollars and the cost of an aluminum 4ft x 8ft. dust sign is around $175.00. The signs are made on an aluminum panel so as to be able to withstand the weather elements of Las Vegas. They are lightweight and can be installed by a professional sign installer or be self installed by the home owner. ( Contact your local Clark County Air Quality Management employee to determine what location is best served for installing ).
