Under the Biosecurity Act 2014 and Biosecurity Regulation 2016, wild dogs are classified as a restricted biosecurity matter and Seqwater has a responsibility to manage them.

1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) baits will be laid at various sites on Seqwater land around the dam from Wednesday 20 March 2019 for a period of two weeks.

Baits are a humane and effective species-specific pesticide used state-wide to control these populations.  Warning: there is no known antidote for 1080 poisoning.  Please muzzle or restrain domestic and working dogs during this period.

Seqwater has advised fishers to release and not eat fish from Hinze Dam because of naturally-occurring mercury.

Queensland Health has warned that fish caught in the dam are not suitable to eat due to elevated levels of naturally-occurring mercury in longer-lived fish.

This follows recent results from routine Seqwater fish testing.

The level of mercury in the water is low and well within safe limits for drinking.

An Seqwater spokesman said fishing in Hinze Dam should be catch-and-release only.
