Aquatic weed spraying is scheduled to be carried out in the Rotorua/Te Arawa Lakes from Wednesday 7th April and will continue intermittently until Friday 28th May 2021.
This work will be carried out via boat-based and helicopter boom spraying using the herbicide diquat in gel form at the following Rotoiti sites.
Ōkahutoroa Bay/Cherry Bay, Okawa Bay, Te Weta Bay, Otaramarae Bay Boat Ramp, Whangamoa Drive, Te Ti Bay, Te Arero Bay, Tokerau Bay, Gisborne Point, Tuarae Point, Te Ruato Bay, Hauparu Bay & Tapuaekura Bay.
All work is dependent on suitable weed, water and weather conditions and is subject to change without notice.
