TOWNSHIP WEED SPRAYING PROGRAM

Please be advised that the Township of Montague will be conducting a noxious weed spraying program on its Township road allowance this spring. Four roads has been identified as having a medium to heavy infestation of noxious weeds, particularly poison parsnip. See chart below.

The Township has jointly tendered with the County of Lanark for one application of the product Clearview on Township road allowances only and not on private property. The spray program, in conjunction with regular roadside mowing, will assist the Township in the control of noxious weeds. Weather permitting, we expect the spraying to take place between May 23 and the first week of June.

If you are on one of the roads identified below, you can request that the section of road allowance in front of your property is not sprayed by contacting the Township at 613-283-7478 or at jralph@township.montague.on.ca. The Township will supply no spray signs for your property.

The selected contractor is Green Stream Lawn and Vegetation Management Inc and is fully qualified in Ontario for the application of herbicides.
