The City of Steamboat will be spraying White Top and other noxious weeds within the city limits over the next two weeks. A harmless blue dye will be used to identify areas that have been sprayed. The dye will disappear within a day or two. Once the herbicide has dried, it is okay for children and pets to walk through the sprayed area if needed. Dry times depend on weather but are usually an hour or two. Just to be extra safe, it would be good to keep children and pets off sprayed areas for 24 hours. If you have questions, you can call the City at 879-1807.
