Noxious Weed Control
To combat the spread of noxious weeds, Washington State passed a law in 1969 that mandates their control. In accordance with the law the Klickitat County Noxious Weed Control Board was activated by the Board of County Commissioners in April 1976.
The function of the weed board is to act as a local governing body administering Washington's weed law: Chapter 17.10 RCW. Our mission is to protect Klickitat County lands and natural resources from the degrading impact of noxious weeds.
