UPDATE---September 25, 2019----IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL COVENTRY RESIDENTS REGARDING EEE SPRAYING IN TOWN

    Update for September 25, 2019  3:00pm

     

    This is the Town of Coventry Emergency Management Agency with an important message regarding the mosquito spraying for EEE being held tonight Wednesday Sept 25th.

    Areas scheduled to have aerial spraying include all those east of RTE 102 extending to the West Warwick line. Aerial Spraying
    will begin around 6:30 pm and conclude by dawn Thursday.  Areas west of 102 should follow the same precautions in case the flight plan varies.  The aircraft will be flying low.  The map can be viewed on the website listed at the end of this message. 

           
    The pesticide being used is regulated and has been extensively tested. It is being used at very low concentrations. No adverse health effects are associated with its use for mosquito control. 
    However, it is generally good for people to limit their exposure to pesticides when possible. While spraying is occurring, it is best to err on the side of caution and limit time outdoors, bring any pets inside, and keep your windows closed. For more information, call 2-1-1 or visit RI DEM’s website at
