Post date: Apr 8, 2015 9:12:17 PM
The Whatcom County Public Works Department is beginning the year 2015 Road Shoulder Herbicide Program. Approximately 250 miles of roads are scheduled for treatment. Lawns and yard areas may have a minimum 12” wide strip treated to aid in drainage and minimize pavement damage.
Property owners who do not wish to have their adjoining right-of-way treated have the option of maintaining the right-of-way abutting their property. Agreements to this effect may be signed and “Owner Will Maintain” signs obtained from Maintenance and Operations, 901 West Smith Road between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is no charge for this service. Contact Whatcom County Maintenance and Operations at 360-676-6759 for more information.
