mosquito spraying this week

FYI - There will be mosquito spraying this Thursday night 8/21, but NOT here in the neighborhood. From around 8:00 p.m. to midnight, there will be spraying in two very limited areas on the Far South Side, parts of the West Pullman and Riverdale neighborhoods.

The first area is bounded by 115th St. on the north, 127th St. on the south, the MWRD Calumet water reclamation plant on the east, and Yale on the west. The second area is bounded by 130th St. on the north, the Little Calumet River on the south, Doty/Bishop Ford Expressway on the east, and city limits on the west.

The word is that no further spraying is planned anywhere else in the city this week, but that could change if mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus are found in the traps that are being monitored.
