We encourage anyone who has done clearing or thinning of fuel loads on their property to participate in the Firewise project for reimbursement. See additional information elsewhere on this page.
Beginning October 1, 2019, property owners who have already taken advantage of the $50.00 reimbursement for roll off fees from the Firewise committee may submit for reimbursement for a second rolloff.
Reimbursements are on a first come basis and will stop when our budgeted amount is reached. Reimbursement requests must be received by 31October, 2019.
Thank you for being Firewise.

2019 Upper Hondo SWCD Noxious Weed Cost-share Program
Posted on Apr 16th, 2019
The Upper Hondo Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is once again offering a noxious weed control cost-share program.  The program reimburses individual ROS property owners up to 50% of the total project cost, up to $500.  Property owners have two options for treatment:
  • The property owner purchases non-restricted herbicide and applies independently.  Note that before and after pictures are required.  Herbicide can be purchased at the Upper Hondo SWCD office in Capitan.  The individual property owner files the cost-share application with Upper Hondo SWCD, along with the before and after pictures.
  • The landowner hires a licensed, commercial application company and attains an estimate for the project.  Once the company treats the noxious weeds, the cost estimate is used for reimbursement and needs to accompany the cost-share application.  A representative from Upper Hondo SWCD will visit the property to ensure the work was done.
The ROS uses Alto Weed Control to treat noxious weeds on our county right-of-ways.  The contact information is:
