Town of Paradise

The Town of Paradise Public Works Department will begin the annual roadside herbicide application starting March 8, 2017. Performing this work helps keep the road edges and ditches free of noxious weeds and reduces the fire danger for the upcoming summer while keeping drainage ditches clear to prevent future flooding.

If residents would prefer to not have roadway edge sprayed adjacent to their property, please contact the Town Clerk’s office at (530) 872-6291 x102 to arrange for a “no-spray” agreement. The Town maintains a list of properties requesting this “no-spray”. We request a contact name, address and phone number for our files and that the resident manually keep the weeds and invasive species cleared. Residents on the “no-spray” list will be provided white flags to mark areas not to be sprayed. Residents can also sign up for a “no spray” agreement online at the following website:

Trained and licensed operators will do all spraying in strict compliance with the Butte County Agricultural Commissioner requirements and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Most treated areas will have a six to eight foot wide band of herbicide applied (from the edge of pavement outward). This treatment reduces the amount of weeds and vegetation alongside the roadway edges and will greatly reduce the chance of carelessly thrown cigarettes causing a wildland fire later this summer. In addition, control of noxious weeds during this stage of development will improve the roadside drainage and minimize additional maintenance by Town staff.

The spraying will consist of critical road shoulders, selected areas along the Memorial Trailway, drainage ditches, as well as spot spraying the poison oak and invasive broom species. A listing of roads to be treated is provided on the bottom of this page.

We do not anticipate any traffic delays. Spraying operations will be performed with a marked Town of Paradise pickup truck and a 200-gallon pull spray tank. If motorists encounter the spraying operations, please stay back a reasonable distance. The operators will pull off the roadway and allow the motorists to pass at the first convenient location.
