Restoration Spray Technicians Busy this Week

Application Guidelines Carefully Followed

A group of four technicians were back in areas of Glencoe Swale that are included in a watershed habitat restoration project. The crew spot-sprayed in treatment areas to keep invasive Himalayan Blackberry, English Ivy, and Reed Canary Grass plants from flourishing.

An aquatic herbicide is pumped into backpack tanks for use along the edges of the treatment area.

Crew members target only invasive plants. They are careful and are alert not to spray native plants or bird nesting sites.

Look carefully and you can detect a blue dye that stains the area that was sprayed.

Signage is posted during the process to inform the public that Rodeo, an aquatic safe herbicide, is in use.
