Laws & Policies
RCW 17.10 is the Washington State Weed Law. It describes our duties and requirements. It also outlines the enforcement process and right of entry capabilities.
WAC 16–750 details the actual noxious weed list, how to change it, and the monetary penalties for lack of control. The language regarding control has been changed to:
"Control" of noxious weeds means to prevent all
seed production and to prevent the dispersal of all propagative
parts capable of forming new plants.
Okanogan County Weed Board Policy outlines our day to day programs and procedures. A current policy is available in the Noxious Weed Control Board Office. We are located on the bottom floor of the Courthouse in room 102.
