Noxious Weed Spraying Begins May 21

Weed Mitigation Program Spans Several Weeks

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 15, 2018-Noxious weed spraying will begin on Monday,
May 21, in the city’s right-of-way around town and will continue for approximately 30 days, weather
permitting.
The City of Steamboat Springs has hired a private contractor to
spray for weeds including whitetop plants (see photo). The
contractor uses a harmless blue dye to mark where the herbicide
has been sprayed. The dye typically disappears in a day or two.
Once the herbicide has dried, children and pets may walk through
the sprayed area if needed. Dry times depend on weather but
typically run an hour to two hours after application. As a
precaution, children and pets should stay off sprayed areas for 24
hours.
Depending on the weed, plants usually see some color change
within a week and complete browning normally occurs in two to
three weeks.
If you have questions or need additional information on the city’s
noxious weed spraying, please contact Barb Wheeler at 871-8274
or Sheila Weekly at 879-1807.
