Important information – Proposed 1080 possum control operation
Greater Wellington and Wellington Water Limited (WWL) propose to undertake an aerial possum control operation in part of the Hutt Water Collection Area (HWCA), using the pesticide, sodium fluoroacetate (1080). We are proposing to carry out the operation during suitable weather conditions from early May 2023.
This area was proposed to be treated in May 2022, however due to unsuitable weather conditions at that time, it was not completed.
