1080 Operation – Waimahia, Wainui, Opepe
The operation involves the southern end of Kaingaroa Forest to the south of State Highway Five, Opepe South, Opepe Trust, and Wainui Forests.
It is proposed to aerially apply toxic cereal pellet baits, these baits are to be applied throughout the treatment area. All toxic baits are dyed green.
Exclusion zones are to be placed along the public roads which bound this treatment area and areas of crew occupation. However before any vehicles, machinery or persons leave the operational area (after the toxic application) at the end of any workday or for crew relocation, workers need to ensure that no baits have collected on tyres, mudguards, vehicle trays, attachments, or the soles of work boots. All baits must be removed, by using protective gloves, if baits are handled ensure that hands are washed thoroughly afterwards. The removal of baits is of utmost importance to ensure baits remain within the operational area, thereby ensuring public safety (children and dogs).
