Herbicide Application on County Roadways
The Mesa County Transportation Department and Noxious Weed & Pest Management will begin applying herbicides along roadways throughout Mesa County in late February.
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 October.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
