2024 Notification of Weed Prevention on Pavements and Sidewalks
As part of our program to control vegetation emerging from pavements and sidewalks, the Town of Old Orchard Beach DPW will be completing pavement crack and crevice herbicide applications this season. An initial herbicide (Esplanade 200SC) application will be applied in May. Secondary applications will be made as needed till the end of September.  A state certified licensed contractor will complete the work. Target areas include municipal sidewalks, walkways and parking lots. Herbicides to be utilized include Reward Herbicide, Esplanade 200 SC and an organic herbicide, Finalsan Herbicidal Soap.
The town 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.  Further information can be obtained from Municipal Pest Management Services, Inc. (603-431-0008 or swampfixer@swamp-inc.com).
