2013 Rural Roadside Vegetation Control Program

photo-TAS-baselineroad-210X150.jpgThe Rural Roadside Vegetation Control Program will begin June 1, 2013.

The program will help Strathcona County keep roadsides clear of weeds and brush, while utilizing environmentally conscious practices and reduced-risk herbicides.

Keeping rural roadsides free of noxious weeds and brush improves:

  • visibility at intersections
  • visibility along the roadside making it easier to see wildlife
  • drainage
  • efficiency in snow clearing.

All roads south of Highway 16 will be spot sprayed using herbicide and all roads north of Highway 16 will receive a broadcast application of herbicide.

In all country residential subdivisions, herbicide will be applied using a spot spray method on noxious weeds and brush under two metres, as required.

Landowner Option Program
This program provides the landowner the option to control vegetation adjacent to their property rather than having County staff do the work using herbicide.  To take part in the program, please contact Transportation and Agriculture Services.
