Notice of bird control programme - Te Kūiti Wastewater Treatment Plant and Landfill ponds

20 Dec 2023, 8:23 AM

During this time of year there is a large duck and swan population that congregates on the ponds at the Te Kūiti Wastewater Treatment Plant. The ponds are an undesirable habitat for waterfowl because of the immediate risk to bird health from avian botulism, and the risk of disease transmittal to nearby farmland.

As part of our Resource Consent, Council has commenced its annual programme using an acoustic deterrent device, to discourage the waterfowl from populating the ponds at the Te Kūiti Wastewater Treatment Plant and Landfill ponds.
The loud bang created by the device may be heard randomly but should not cause concern, as it is harmless.
The device will not be used overnight and on weekends.
If you have any queries, problems or concerns that we should be made aware of, please contact us on 0800 932 4357 – our call centre is available 24/7.

Thank you for your understanding co-operation.
