[ARCHIVED] Railroad Notifies City of 2018 Vegetation Control Spray Season

The City of Eugene has been notified by Union Pacific Railroad that it is beginning the 2018 vegetation control spray program. Spraying is expected to begin June 1, weather and train movement permitting. The spray pattern will be 24 feet wide, 12 feet on each side from the center of the tracks. 

Union Pacific will use the following products: 

  • Method 240 SL
  • Oust Extra
  • Razor Pro
  • Induce (surfactant)

As part of a Good Neighbor Agreement, Union Pacific notifies the City of Eugene of its intent to spray for vegetation control along the tracks within City limits so that the City can provide that information to the community. The City of Eugene does not control the method of weed control, what is sprayed or when the spraying occurs.  

For more information contact Union Pacific Public Affairs at 503-249-3079.
