City Initiates Weed Control Efforts 2018

The City of Las Cruces will begin a warm-season herbicide program to proactively manage weeds throughout the City’s road and drainage network beginning the week of March 26. The weed control effort was developed by the Street & Traffic Operations section in consultation with the City’s weed contractor, the City’s entomologist consultant, a weed scientist, and the City’s Parks and Recreation Department.

A contractor will be applying pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicide on cracks, joints, and crevices within sidewalks, curb, and gutter areas, and on rock-lined areas within drainage facilities. The work is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete. Residents who have questions or would like to request the application not occur on the sidewalk, curb, or gutter area directly adjacent to their home are encouraged to contact Street & Traffic Operations at 575/541-2595. Requests will be taken until March 23. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
