Roadside Spraying Program

Roadside spraying in SDG takes place in May and June of each year.  Spraying occurs from the edge of the gravel shoulder to within 1 metre of the property limits and uses selective herbicides to control the growth of undesirable vegetation. The contractor performing the work is fully licensed.  Spraying occurs in areas identified during regular weed audits.

Vegetation Management in SDG

SDG is required to keep its roadsides free of undesirable weeds and maintained in a responsible manner.  Transportation Services  manages roadside vegetation by mowing, brushing, tree cutting and weed spraying.  In the spring, the County will spray areas where a significant growth of noxious weeds is occurring.  The County also mows unmaintained ditches from the shoulder of the road to the fence line once per year (depending on the steepness of the ditch and weather conditions). Mowing begins in June and finishes in October.  Tree and brush trimming occurs from spring to fall.
