Noxious Weed Alert!!!

The purpose of the Weed Department is to enforce the Utah Noxious Weed Act. The Weed Department manages the control efforts of all State and County noxious weeds, assisting the residents of Uintah County, where possible, to identify designated noxious and invading weeds and in many cases assist in controlling them too.

Weed control is a big job!
The costs of weed control can be enormous. However the cost of not controlling weeds often carries an even larger price. Most noxious weeds are non-native plants that have been accidentally or intentionally introduced into the United States. These noxious weeds compete aggressively for available resources. Some costly problems include: Reducing crop yields, reducing livestock forage, limiting recreational opportunities, reducing wildlife habitat, displacing native vegetation, increasing soil erosion, adversely affecting soil and water quality and many other problems.

The Weed Department is a member of the Utah Weed Control Association and is a partner in the Uintah Basin Cooperative Weed Management Area. As a member of these two organizations, the Weed Department has access to the latest information, technology, and funding.

The County Commission has appointed a five member Weed Board to oversee weed control issues. The County has one full-time weed control employee, Nathan Belliston as Weed Control Supervisor, and one part-time employee, Linda Streeter as Secretary. Seasonal employees are hired each year as necessary.
