Kamloops’ herbicide use in fields, parks questioned by environmental advocate

City says it follows label directions to the letter

March 17, 2021  By Kamloops This Week

An environmental advocate in Kamloops alleges the city is using herbicides on its sports fields and in parks that are contrary to product label guidelines. She has been monitoring the city’s use of herbicides for three years and said she found, in 2019, that products in greater concentrations than advised on the label were being used. The city, however, says it follows label directions and has never exceeded concentrations.
