The purpose of the Noxious Weed Control Board is to protect and preserve the agricultural lands and natural resources of the county from the degrading impact of exotic and invasive noxious weeds. The Board believes the prevention of noxious weed infestations is the best approach both economically and environmentally. To realize this goal, a comprehensive prevention and early intervention program will be advocated. By promoting communication with landowners, a cooperative and coordinated effort in the management of noxious weeds can be realized. The Board believes that voluntary compliance can be achieved by enhancing public awareness through educational efforts. In event that voluntary compliance is not achieved, the Board shall enforce control pursuant to RCW 17.04 and RCW 17.10. The County Noxious Weed Control Board works cooperatively with the five County Weed Districts through interlocal agreements.
