The Whatcom County Public Works Department is beginning the year 2018 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 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. Owners wishing to choose this option are required to complete and sign an agreement to maintain. This form is available from the Maintenance and Operations office located at 901 West Smith Road between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. “Owner Will Maintain” signs will be available to owners once the signed form has been received by our offices. There is no charge for this service.
