Roadside Spraying

Roadside Spraying Program

Roadside spraying will takes place in the Township of North Glengarry to help control the growth of noxious weeds. This treatment is conducted on roadside ditched in rural cross sections.

The Township participates in a program with the United Counties of Stormont Dundas and Glengarry who employs the services of a licensed contractor to apply selective herbicides to spray the roadside. Spraying occurs from the edge of the gravel shoulder to approximately one meter from the fence line.

No Spray Areas

Property owners can erect “No Spray” signs at the start and finish of their properties if they do not want the right-of-way sprayed in front of their property. The dimensions of the sign must be one foot by two feet and the sign must be placed approximately three feet from the edge of the gravel shoulder. The signs must be easily visible, at least one foot above the vegetation and at the start and finish of the property.

Please note that roadside spraying will not occur if the ditch is maintained as lawn/mowed on a regular basis.
