Spraying targets salt cedar at Seminoe Reservoir

Rawlins, Wyo. – Spraying begins this week to try to
eradicate up to 1,000 acres of salt cedar around Seminoe Reservoir.

The Medicine Bow Conservation District plans use a helicopter to spray between 600 and 1,000 acres of salt cedar.

Shawna Klatt works for the district. She says the Coordinated Resource Management group is pushing the project. She says the
group has already cleared salt cedar from about 30 miles of the Medicine Bow River. She says there are an estimated 5,000 acres of salt cedar around the reservoir.
