RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Washoe County’s Community Services Department is preparing to launch its annual weed abatement program.
The County’s Community Services Department (CSD) has one certified herbicide applicator who will begin working in the North Valleys this week, then move down to Washoe Valley. Both areas are priorities based on weed growth and the weed abatement spraying will be based upon weather and wind conditions.
Residents are requested to stay inside and keep pets indoors as well when spraying of roadside ditches near their homes takes place. Property owners with wells near ditches should also clear any brush obscuring the well so it is visible from the street and the area will not be sprayed to avoid the possibility of chemical contact with well water.
For more information, call the Washoe County Roads Operation at (775) 328-2180.
