Port Orchard spraying to control vegetation Sept. 30-Oct. 4

The weather may impact spray schedule

PORT ORCHARD — Residents are being alerted by the City of Port Orchard that citywide vegetation control spraying will start Monday, Sept. 30 and continue through Friday, Oct. 4.

The city’s public works department said products to be applied to control vegetation and weeds include Crossbow, Element4 and Arsenal Habitat. Officials said none of the products contain the herbicide glyphosate, which studies have shown increases the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer.

The weeklong schedule may be affected by rainy and windy weather conditions, the city said.

Those with questions can contact Public Works at 360-876-4991.
