Weed Removal

Regardless of how weeds are removed, if the soil surface is disturbed, it must be re-stabilized to prevent it from becoming a source of dust that could cross the property line.

If more than 0.10 acre is disturbed, and weed removal is done by using mechanical equipment (such as discing, blading or scraping), then a dust control permit is required.

If less than 0.10 acre is disturbed, or if weeds are removed with a mower, weed-eater, or a hand tool, then a dust control permit is not required. However, dust must still be controlled and soil must be re-stabilized to prevent it from becoming a source of dust that could cross the property line.
