The Counties, Ontario – As part of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry yearly vegetation management program, the Roads department will be spraying noxious weeds with approved herbicides along several County Roads.
The main purpose of the Weed Control Act, R.S.O. 1990, is to reduce the impact of noxious weeds on the industries of agriculture and horticulture.
“The roads that have been selected for treatment are roads with the highest weed pressures”, stated County Engineer, Ben de Haan. “Our program targets unmaintained rural roadsides where the proliferation of these weeds can impact adjacent fields”.
Depending on weather, the work will be start the week of May 12 and should be completed by June 13; however the schedule and progress greatly depends on the weather conditions during this period.
Information about the program, roads which will be treated, how to erect no spray signs and daily updates (once we start) can be found on the County website at www.sdgcounties.ca.
