To make sure our channel system is free of submerged weeds we have an on-going program in place.
As part of this program we treat the submerged weeds in our channel system with Magnacide H. Magnacide H is widely used to control submerged weeds in irrigation channels and has been successfully used in past years.
This chemical will be applied by trained SRW staff into our channels using strict controls and monitoring.
The treatment will occur in the following areas:
Monday 26 November: Main Southern Channel – From downstream of Glenmaggie Weir to Heyfield/Upper Maffra Road, Tinamba
Tuesday 27 November: Main Northern Channel – From Upper Maffra Road, Newry to Brewers HIll Road, Maffra
