Washington County staff will begin spot spraying noxious weeds in the more than 220 miles of rural roadsides June 19 through October.

This is being done to help comply with the Minnesota State Noxious Weed law administered by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. The chemicals to be used are Escort XP, Milestone VM and Liberate.

Property owners who do not want their roadside sprayed or mowed, and are willing to take responsibility for controlling and eradicating noxious weeds on the adjacent roadside, may visit the Washington County North Shop at 11660 Myeron Road in Stillwater Township to obtain signage, or call 651-430-4300. Be prepared to provide an address, the nearest cross street, and a description of where Do Not Spray signs will be located.
