page What is arsenic? Arsenic was used to control parasites on sheep from 1840s until the 1980s. It was also the active ingredient in some pesticides and herbicides used in horticulture. Arsenic is a semi-metallic element that does not break down in soil and may slowly leach down through the soil and contaminate ground and surface water. Very high concentrations of arsenic have been measured in soil in the vicinity of former sheep dips in New Zealand. No. 3 Sheep Dip Factsheet

demonstrated an overall high level of environmental performance. The Council’s monitoring programme for the year under review included 15 inspections, 66 water samples collected for physicochemical analysis, four composite soil samples, one biomonitoring survey of receiving waters and a fish netting survey. The monitoring showed that similar to the previous monitoring period, salinity trends in the groundwater were increasing in the specific irrigation areas. This is further supported by the

viable. To assess where irrigation may be viable modelling of irrigation demand was carried out. Only land with a slope less than 15 degrees and that is currently classified as ‘productive farmland’ was considered. Weather and soil water holding data was then analysed and parameters around irrigation application rates and reliability of supply were applied. For the cost benefits of irrigation to be determined the pasture yield response to irrigation was assessed using the AusFarm

remedies due to concerns over meat residues in 1961. The use and storage of these chemicals is banned under the Stockholm Convention for persistent organic pollutants. Dieldrin is the most common organochlorine pesticide contaminating soil and water within and adjacent to former dip sites. More than one type of organochlorine pesticide may be measured in soil and water samples collected from dip sites. Toxicity of organochlorine pesticides Humans The toxic effects associated with exposure to

of landfarming. The Council’s monitoring programme for the year under review included four inspections, 21 groundwater samples and six soil samples collected for physicochemical analysis, in addition to the review of monitoring data received from the Company. The monitoring showed that there were very minor effects detected from site activities on groundwater quality, but that no adverse effects were detected on soil quality. By comparison with previous years, there were some
