Willow spraying 2022

Otago Regional Council contractors will be spraying herbicide at a number of locations along the Taieri, Clutha, Manuherekia and Hawea Rivers, as well Sow Burn, Little Kye Burn and Swin Burn.

The spraying will start late February 2022 and complete by the end of March 2022 (specific dates will depend on weather and contractor availability).

A helicopter will be used to spray juvenile willows on river beaches. Holders of known water takes have been advised separately of these operations.
