Somerset County Vegetation Control

The Somerset County Road and Bridge Divisions will be performing ground applications of herbicides for vegetation control. These applications will take place along our County highway system within your municipality. Both the State and Federal Governments approve all of the herbicides and spraying equipment we use to perform this task for ground application. The areas that we intend to treat are those that are the most labor intensive for us to maintain. There are also safety sensitive areas along our highway system that need this type of application. Our ground applications will continue on a regular basis, as needed from March 17, 2024 through December 1, 2024.  We shall post monthly notices in the local media for the duration of our application time frame.
