Directorate of Public Works
Spring is a time for change, and with the change of season come weeds which can ruin garden beds everywhere at White Sands Missile Range.
The Directorate of Public Works has a plan in place to ensure weeds won’t be creeping up in playgrounds or the cracks in-between sidewalk squares. DPW uses a pre-emergent spray to prevent weeds from growing in the housing area and around Garrison buildings.
Spraying is done as early as possible in the spring through both Service Orders and Preventive Maintenance Requests. However, DPW can’t catch them all and needs your help to prevent weeds from taking over. If you have problems with weeds call DPW as soon as possible at (575) 678-1116.
Pre-emergent is an herbicide, so please use caution and keep your children and pets away. Do not walk across an area which has been sprayed and is still wet. Dye markers are not used outside the housing area.
For more information contact DPW at (575) 678-1116.
