Aerial Gorse spraying at 205 Sainsbury Road, Pirongia
A helicopter will apply the agrichemicals picloram and triclopyr (trade name
Trichloram Brushkiller*), Organosilicone** and Antifoam*** by aerial boom
spraying between 5:30am and 12pm (noon) between 14-18 December 2020
or alternatively between 11-22 January 2021 as weather permits. Expected
duration is approximately 5 hours, but will depend on the weather conditions.
Sensitive areas such as the Ngaparierua Stream, creeks, wetlands and
stands of trees within the Recreation Reserve are excluded from the spraying
zone. To avoid contamination of these areas or any nearby residential, rural
and commercial properties, spraying will only occur when wind conditions
are such that any potential spray drift will be minimised.
During this operation the reserve and carpark will be closed to the public.
Traffic management will be in place to provide temporary road closure for
Sainsbury Road while spraying takes place along the road side, which is
planned to be in-place between 5.30am and 7.30am. Signage will be posted
at the entrances to the operational area and will be replaced after the work
has been conducted with signage to advise the area has been sprayed.
People who may be affected in the adjoining area will be notified in writing
as required by the Waikato Regional Plan. The spray plan for the operation is
available for viewing.
