Program Information

Prerules and regulationsvention, education and technical assistance continue to be the keys to the success of the Kitsap County Noxious Weed Control Program. Noxious weeds are found everywhere in Kitsap County: in urban, suburban and rural areas; on developed and undeveloped land; in gardens, farmland, forests and natural areas, as well as in lakes, rivers, streams and in Puget Sound. Weeds are everyone’s problem, directly and indirectly.

Weed WarriorIn Washington State, “noxious weed” is a legally defined term. The Washington State Noxious Weed Control Board determines which plants are placed on the Washington State Noxious Weed List (WAC 16-750). These plants are non-native, aggressive and invasive, but with the potential to be eradicated or adequately controlled within the state. Therefore neither of these plants is on the noxious weed list.
