Roadside Spraying Program 2023

The Agricultural Service Board of the Municipal District of Bonnyville No. 87 and/or contractors will commence spraying roadside ditches along provincial highways and municipal rights-of-ways, as required to control the spread of weeds, and brush on or about June 1, 2023. Spraying will continue throughout the summer until the end of September. 

Landowners who wish to control the weeds adjacent to their property, on municipal rights-of-way may do so by signing a Weed Control Agreement. This agreement allows the landowner to control weeds in an alternative matter than herbicide. If you fail to administer control the M.D. may control them with methods, they deem appropriate. A copy of the Weed Control Agreement can be found on our website at 

Landowners living along Primary or Secondary Highways should contact Emcon, the maintenance contractor with any questions related to weed control. 

Landowners are reminded that the road allowances are owned by the M.D. or by the province (in the case of provincial highways), and any activity carried out within the road allowances are done at their own risk.

For more information, please contact the Ag Services Department at 780-826-3951.
