Aerial Buffelgrass spraying

Posted: Updated:

This week choppers will fly over Tucson Mountain Park to spray for Buffelgrass. Environmentalists with the center for biodiversity say it is not safe.

The Pima County Natural Resources Department says it has held public meetings to address concerns about the areal spray. The problem is that Buffelgrass often grows in rugged terrain, according to Pima County.

A viewer and resident living near the target site sent pictures, where she says, she can not find buffelgrass.

Still the center for Biodiversity insists the county's test is not worth any possible long term effects.
