Calaveras County - Annual Roadside Weed Spraying 2019

San Andreas, CA...Calaveras Public Works Department wants to inform the public that the annual roadside weed control spraying along county roads is beginning. Roadside weed spraying is important to prevent weeds from encroaching on the edges of roads, which can obstruct driver’s views, lead to road damage and fuel wildfires. County staff typically sprays a 6’ swath of land immediately next to roads twice annually: near the middle to end of February, and again near the middle of April, depending on weather.




If you do not want spraying to occur on portions of your parcels that abut County-maintained roads, please opt out of the program by completing these two steps:

1. Call Public Works at (209)754-6401 at any time to place your name and parcel address on the NO SPRAY list, and leave a message confirming:
a. Your name, parcel # and physical address (not mailing address).
b. The approximate location and length of zones on your parcel(s) on which you do not want roadside spraying to occur.

2. Place clearly legible signs (large enough to be seen from a moving truck) on two (2) locations of your parcel, per no spray zone.
a. First sign shall read BEGIN NO SPRAY ZONE.
b. Second sign shall read END NO SPRAY ZONE.
c. Note: as all roadside spraying will occur from the right side of the road only, ensure that the first sign encountered by the operator is BEGIN NO SPRAY ZONE.

Thank you for your support of this important program. Please call (209) 754-6401 with any questions.

    Ditto-yep! I think this will also help cut down on the risk of fires along the roads. Seems like there is always someone who will throw out a lit cigarette (or maybe a butt of a lit joint for that matter) out of their car. Or a car has to park in the weeds by the road which has a catalytic converter (which most vehicles have now believe).

        Yes I hear that vinegar and water really works well and I have seen it done when my room mate sprays that around our veggie patch. That would be a good thing for anybody to use. And since we're on the subject I don't think it would help with growing pot since folks aren't allowed to grow pot outside in this county-only inside and 6 plants per adult and that's it. Just don't let people under 21 have any! Kids need to grow up without taking any mind altering substances so their brains can develop to their fullest!

Good to see this very important service back. The county quietly discontinued this for a couple of years when the budget was tight.

    The State used to fund some of the spraying.
    The Drs follow the spray trucks, as Round-Up is proven to cause cancers.
    The easy way using toxic chemicals had side effects- cancers.

        The program is renewed because The County can buy Round-Up real cheap since the recent Court Finding.

    Come on people! It’s vinegar with 1/4 part lemon in H2O. Better than waking up in Custer flat Vietnam smelling napom.

        County should get a side mower to cut the grass on the side of the roads instead of spraying pesticides. The pesticides end up in the watershed. Secondly, our roadside ditches around the county are falling apart during heavy rain storms, in part, because of the sparying. The roots from the plants hold the soil in place. If the roadsides were cut annually it would be enough to control plant growth, while maintaining their roots integrity to reduce and prevent soil erosion. In addition, once the hillsides along the roads begin erroding, the undercut left will always get worse over time unless fixed properly.

            Roundup

            Your a f*ning idiot. Always. I love watching you lose. At least your as* is getting sprayed and I am not. Try to critically think for once.

            You sound like a dumb hippy. Yes fire breaks are good, but not if they cause another serious problem for us to deal with. Its not worth the cost. Roundup is a well documented human carcinogen and ends up in the watershed. And erosion along roads have gotten bad. Some roads still in weast point are closed from land slides. We need to be improving and keep our hillside soil stable. On other hand, dozers that make fire breaks cause minimal to no soil erioson if done well.

            If your going to win an arguement don’t say that the bad pot farmers are polluting the watershed and then encourage the county to do the same thing with Round up right along or road drainage. Its worse then the bad pot farmers its sprayed directly into the drainage to run into the watershed.
            Thats the reason you lose. It’s because you have no values to appreciate. Roundup is a well documented carcenogen that is on its way out.

            Go spill your spat to some meth head. They’re the only ones who think your smart. Because they like using toxic chemicals like Round up too. Go spray yourself moron

It is the County Supervisors who are approving this. It needs to stop. There are other organic methods that can be used.

This poison is everywhere. Glyphosate is also patented (although not marketed) as an antibiotic and has been shown to be potent against bacteria in other media than soil. In addition to being an endocrine disruptor - it is likely making the human herd fat through well known antibiotic weight gain effects. Scarier still is that perpetual low dose antibiotics create the perfect scenario for the creation of antibiotic resistant infections. Glyphosate is making us fatter and sicker.
