No Spray Requests - due May 31, 2021

Post Date:04/13/2021 2:43 PM

The Lac La Biche County Environmental Services staff will be carrying out the annual roadside brush and weed control program on County owned roads during the months of June to November. Please Note: This program pertains to County owned roads only. Property owners with land adjacent to primary or secondary highways must contact the appropriate provincial representatives.

The standard practices of the County’s spray program maintain a 30 meter no spray buffer zone in front of yard sites, dugouts, waterways or herbicide sensitive vegetation (i.e. gardens, shelterbelts). A selective herbicide will be used in the hamlets of Plamondon and Lac La Biche to control Noxious and Prohibited Noxious weeds, if no other options can be found following all laws and guidelines.

The deadline for completed “No Spray Requests” to be received at the Lac La Biche County Office will be May 31. No telephone requests will be accepted. Landowners who make a “No Spray Request” shall be responsible for weed/brush control within the road allowance adjacent to their properties commencing in the year the agreement is signed. In addition, receipt of the completed form authorizes the Environmental Services staff to enter onto properties to post “No Spray” signs in visible locations to mark areas where a “No Spray Request” has been made.
