Ōpaoa Loop Herbicide Spray
As part of the Ōpaoa River Loop’s annual weed maintenance, the herbicide Reglone is being applied from 1 November 2023.
Property owners adjoining the Loop should not take watercress or use this water for irrigation or stock at this time. All reasonable precautions should be taken to ensure pets and domestic animals do not drink from this water for at least 48 hours following the spray application. Water levels may change within the Loop due to control gate operations.
Any alterations to the proposed programme will be further publicly notified. The spray operation is in accordance with the Marlborough Environment Plan Vol 2 Sec 2.16.11.
