Weed inspections will be taking place throughout the summer months of 2020 in Greenview. Please be advised that the weed inspectors based in Greenview’s Valleyview, Grovedale and Grande Cache offices will be out and about documenting various invasive plants on municipal and private lands. You may see a white Greenview vehicle near your property and an inspector in a high visibility vest performing weed inspections, so please be considerate of their safety.
Please keep in mind that the Weed Control Act grants an inspector right of entry onto private land during reasonable hours (Alberta Weed Control Act W-5.1, Part 3, section 12(1)). The Agriculture Services Department of Greenview promotes a “Door Knocking” program by which we attempt to make contact with land owners during the weed inspection season, while weed inspections are taking place (where practical). We inform the landowners of approximate date and time of when an inspection will take place, the results of the inspection(s) and possible control options of noxious and prohibited noxious plants found.
If you would like more information regarding the Weed Inspection Program, please visit the Greenview website at www.mdgreenview.ab.ca or telephone the Agriculture Department at 780-524-7621 or toll free at 1-888-524-7601. For more information about the Weed Control Act and Regulations, they can be found at the Queens Printer website at www.qp.alberta.ca.

We have notified all landowners of any fields that were tested positive for Clubroot. We have also informed landowners within a 1-mile radius of areas identified as positive.
We have discovered 17 new clubroot fields, the majority of which are located west of DeBolt. This discovery brings Greenview to a total of 23 properties deemed positive for Clubroot, spread across the MD.
Due to FOIP (Freedom of Information Privacy Protection Act) and PIPA (Personal Information Protection Act), we cannot release the personal information of the landowners involved.
