NOTICE OF HERBICIDE APPLICATION

INVASIVE WEED & GROWTH INHIBITOR SPRAYING


The Dunn County Highway Department will begin applying herbicides along the county roadways throughout Dunn County to control invasive plant species and to apply a growth inhibitor to slow the growth rate of grass and weeds starting on Monday, May 9, 2022.


The herbicides that are being utilized are not restricted and will not harm milk weed to support monarch butterfly habitat.


Roadside and right-of-way treatment on county roadways (up to 20-feet on each side of the roadway) will be conducted countywide. Spray will not be applied to yards that are mowed by homeowners on the right of ways - the spraying will only take place in the ditches that are not mowed and maintained.


For questions regarding the herbicide spraying operations, please contact the Dunn County Highway Office at 715-232-2181 or email at (hwy@co.dunn.wi.us).
