Pemberton Community Centre lawn herbicide treatment scheduled for July 4 - please stay off the grass before noon

Jun 30, 2016
Affected Communities: 
Electoral Area C, Village of Pemberton

On Monday July 4, in the morning before 9am, Pemberton Recreation Service will treat the grass at the Pemberton Community Centre with a herbicide to deal with the extensive clover, which has attracted wasps and resulted in several stings to our littlest park users. 

The treatment selected is an all-natural, mineral based herbicide that is absorbed quickly into the plant. The excessive iron makes its way to the root system and causes the weed to quickly die at the source.

It will be applied first thing in the morning of Monday, July 4. Treatment should be completed by 9am. The manufacturer advises that children and pets can go on to the lawn two to three hours after application.

If you have other questions or comments, email the Recreation Services Manager Angela Barth at abarth@slrd.bc.ca, or 604 894 2340 x222.
