Rural Roadside Vegetation Control Program
Control of noxious weeds is a responsibility of all landowners. Strathcona County's Rural Roadside Vegetation Control Program is carried out annually to control weeds on County property and protect adjacent property from encroaching weeds and other problem species.
A variety of mechanical techniques and risk-reduced herbicides are used to ensure a healthy and competitive grass stand, while minimizing weeds and other problem vegetation. We adhere to industry standards provided by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development.
All County maintained right-of-ways will be treated where required this year.
Keeping rural roadsides free of noxious weeds and brush improves:
- visibility at intersection and along the roadside
- efficiency of snow clearing
Landowner Option Program
This program provides the landowner the option to control vegetation in the ditch adjacent to their property. To take part in the program, please contact Transportation and Agriculture Services.
