The Director of Agricultural Services, Manager of Agricultural Services, Agricultural Technicians, and Vegetation Management Technicians are always available to our land owners to offer technical assistance, weed identification services and control program assistance to all landowners within the County of Newell. In cases where weed control is not being done by residents, enforcement under the Weed Control Act of Alberta must be undertaken by law.
Weed control is also implemented by ASB staff on roadsides and municipal owned properties. Weed control along County roadsides is a big priority due to the following reasons:
- To allow clear site lines to signs and intersections and make sure wildlife crossing roadways are visible
- To reduce snow accumulation, promote road drainage and drying
- To facilitate snow removal
- To control noxious and prohibited noxious weeds which threaten agriculture
The Agricultural Service Board also implements many other weed control programs along the rivers and public lands within the County, within our urban centres and along the CPR tracks.
If you have any questions or think you may have come across a noxious weed, please feel free to contact us at 403-794-2336 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org, we are always happy to lend our assistance.
