Roadside spraying for weeds begins Monday, March 20

The Mesa County Transportation Department in cooperation with Mesa County Noxious Weed & Pest Management will begin applying herbicides along roadways throughout Mesa County on Monday, March 20.

The county contracts with a licensed commercial applicator to apply the herbicides to control weeds.

Roadside and right-of-way weed treatment (up to 10 feet on each side of the road) will be conducted countywide several times through September.

If property owners do not want herbicide sprayed along their property line, they can request to be added to the "No Spray" list. Those property owners will need to clearly mark their property lines with signs or bright flags and manage the weeds in and along that area themselves.

Please contact Mesa County Noxious Weed & Pest Management at (970) 255-7121 or weed.pest@mesacounty.us to be added to the "No Spray" list or for other weed identification and treatment questions.

For questions regarding the roadside vegetation mowing, please contact the Mesa County Transportation Department at (970) 244-1807.
