Title: WSDOT Maintenance - Nuisance and Noxious Weeds
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: map
Description:
Abstract:
To help protect the State's resources and economy, the Washington State Noxious Weed Board adopts a State Noxious Weed List each year. This list classifies weeds into three major classes A, B, and C based on the state of invasion of each species and the seriousness of the threat they post to Washington State. Noxious weeds are non-native plants introduced to Washington State that can be highly destructive, competitive, and difficult to control.
Purpose:
Invasive weeds species currently known to exist within Washington State. WSDOT is obligated by law to control designated weeds. These weeds are either designated by the state or by the county weed boards. The designations can change over time. Contact your local County Noxious Weed Board for the most up to date list and laws.
This dataset is used as a general reference layer for geographic information systems at the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). It is maintained by WSDOT Maintenance Operations office. Updates to this dataset are on an as needed basis. If you have any questions about this service, please contact Oai Tang - tangoa@wsdot.wa.gov - (360) 705-7854
