As part of our program to control vegetation emerging from pavements and sidewalks, the City of Biddeford will be completing pavement crack and crevice herbicide applications this season. Herbicide applications will start in May and continue as necessary until early October. A state-licensed contractor will complete the work. Target areas include municipal sidewalks, walkways, facilities, parks and parking lots. Herbicides to be used include Rodeo Herbicide, Reward Herbicide, Esplanade 200 SC and an organic herbicide, Finalsan Herbicidal Soap.
The City will be starting a SWEEP (Sustainable Weed Control on Pavements) Program. SWEEP emphasizes weed prevention to reduce herbicide usage. SWEEP will include pavement crack and crevice filling, sand removal and hand picking larger weeds.
