Last Updated: Thursday, April 30, 2020 - 10:30

Seqwater, in conjunction with City of Gold Coast Council, is conducting pest management activities to manage wild dogs at Pages Headland, Hinze Dam.

Baits will be laid from Thursday 30 April 2020 for a period of two weeks.

1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is a humane and effective species-specific pesticide used state-wide to control these populations.  Warning: there is no known antidote for 1080 poisoning.  

Please ensure domestic and working dogs are restrained or muzzled during this period.

All Seqwater-managed lakes and parks are currently closed but will re-open to recreation on Saturday 2 May 2020.
