Welcome to the official site of Douglas County, Washington!
Spring brings wind, and wind brings blowing dust. Land owners, contractors and citizens can do their part to help alleviate problems this time of year. The Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE), which regulates air quality in Douglas County, recommends that areas that have been excavated be watered, that piles of dirt be covered, and re-vegetation take place as soon as possible. Ecology has useful information available via the Internet:
If you are experiencing a dust problem, talk with the landowner before calling the Department of Ecology. Many times a friendly call corrects the problem. If you donít know who owns the property, you can call the County Assessorís office at 754-8521 or go to the Assessorís Internet homepage and look it up. If talking to the landowner doesnít help, you can call the DOE Yakima office at (509) 575-2490 and ask for the ďair quality complaint tracker.Ē
