Aquatic Weed Spraying Program 2018/19

Project status: In Progress

Council has been undertaking spray control for invasive aquatic plants since January 2018 within the catchments of the Nepean River, Bow Bowing Creek, Bunbury Curran Creek and Georges River.

Approx start: January 2018 Approx finish: May 2019

Herbicide spraying for the invasive aquatic plants, Alligator weed (Alternanthera philoxeroides) and Ludwigia (Ludwigia peruviana), has been undertaken since January 2018 to reduce impacts to local creeks.

Alligator Weed infestations will be treated using Metsulfuron Methyl and/or Glyphosate and Ludwigia infestations will be treated using 2,4-D and/or Glyphosate. These chemicals are applied according to the manufacturer’s specifications and are registered for this use by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.

The public is advised not to use, drink, or swim in waterways during the herbicide application periods.
