Notice to Residents – Noxious Weed Treatment

In British Columbia there are legislative requirements that municipalities must follow to address noxious weeds and invasive plants within its limits. Under provincial legislation, the Township must comply with the British Columbia Weed Control Act and treat noxious weeds on Township property.

Noxious weeds and invasive plants pose a potential risk to people, animals and ecosystems. These weeds can quickly spread causing negative economic, social, and environmental impacts. It is the Township’s commitment to ensure that our public places are sustainable for long-term use and enjoyment.

The Township of Spallumcheen will be conducting herbicide treatment on road ROW during the month of May in the following areas:

  • Grandview Flats Road North & South

  • Otter Lake Road

  • Larkin Cross Road

  • Pleasant Valley Road

Areas that are exempt:

  • ROW that is within 30m of a registered well

  • Organic farms that have an agreement with the Township

For any questions or concerns please contact the Township of Spallumcheen
