Native owls, lizards dying after eating mice and rats poisoned with Ratsak

26/8/20

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-08-26/wildlife-carers-say-owls-lizards-are-dying-eating-poisoned-mice/

A Western Australian wildlife carer is urging people to stop using a well-known brand of rodenticide because it is killing native owls and lizards who eat poisoned mice and rats.

Michelle Jones of GG Wildlife Rescue in Geraldton takes in sick and injured native animals to recover and then release back to the wild.

In the past month, she has seen five native owl species that were poisoned by Ratsak and only one survived.

“The ones that come in are the lucky ones,” she said.

The one that survived is still in care and when it has returned to a healthy weight it will be released in the same location it was found.

Alternatives to poison

Ms Jones said at this time of the year it can be common to see more vermin, meaning an increase in the use of poisonings.

Not only can rodenticides be fatal to native owls, but also to native lizard species.

“I don’t think they realise that the second degree poison is actually killing and making a lot of native species really sick,” she said.

Ms Jones said there are other options that can be used to get rid of mice and rats, like traps, or simply ensuring that you clean up anything that could be a food supply like bird seed.

Nature’s pest control

Some of the most common species Ms Jones has seen poisoned have been the southern boobook owl, the barn owl and black-shouldered kites.

Ms Jones said the best way to get rid of mice and rats is to look after their predators.

“What we are killing, if you’ve got them on your property … these guys are natural predators for rats and mice,” she said.

“You’re really doing something that inadvertently is going to affect the ecology and the ecosystem on your property for future generations.”

Suspicious canola crop damage under investigation

Aug 19 2020

https://www.northqueenslandregister.com.au/story/6886786/suspicious-canola-crop-damage-under-investigation/?cs=4751

POLICE are investigating a failed crop in Victoria’s southern Wimmera region to see whether it has been deliberately poisoned.

A canola crop in the Glenorchy district has been killed by herbicide and Ararat Police’s criminal investigation unit is investigating the cause.

“Potential deliberate damage is one of the avenues we are examining,” said senior constable Jackson Seres.

While spray drift is responsible for significant crop damage across the country at this stage it is not believed it is the culprit in this instance.

S/C Seres said all avenues, such as potential accidental contamination of spray equipment were also being looked at but added the farmer did not believe there had been a spraying error to cause the damage.

He said that the poisoning angle did not centre around someone taking a boom spray and applying chemical directly to the paddock, but rather contaminating a water tank used to prepare tank mixes for spraying.

The farmer with the poisoned crop may not have even been the target of the alleged contamination as the water tank is shared by several neighbours.

Police have been given an estimated loss from the damage of $100,000.

Laboratory investigations are ongoing as to what the active ingredient that caused the damage was, with triasulfuron, widely used in common herbicides, nominated as one potential culprit given the way the damage presented.

It is believed the herbicide was applied to the crop at a post-emergent stage, likely to be some time in June.

Grains industry leaders were scratching their heads to think of a precedent.

While spray drift and accidental application of the wrong chemical by the farmer has torched crops in the past, no one could remember an example in broadacre cropping where spray equipment had been deliberately tampered with in order to sabotage a crop.

Spray operators urged to apply pesticides carefully to prevent spray drift

https://www.miragenews.com/spray-operators-urged-to-apply-pesticides-carefully-to-prevent-spray-drift/

13 August 2020

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is reminding spray operators to follow safety protocols and use herbicides and pesticides responsibly to avoid impacting non-target crops and the environment.

The reminder comes after separate incidents in February this year where wetlands and trees in Moree were allegedly damaged by aerial spraying and trees allegedly damaged at Deepwater 40 km north of Glen Innes.

The EPA was alerted to the alleged aerial overspray at Moree by a resident who reported dead and dying leaves on his trees, on roadside trees and trees along the nearby travelling stock route.

Several trees two kilometres away in the Gwydir Wetlands were also found to have recent pesticide spray damage, with foliage dead or burnt off, along with patches of burnt grass.

The company has been fined $1,500 by the EPA for misuse of pesticides.

A Northern Tablelands landowner was also fined $1,500 and received an official caution for allegedly damaging a neighbour’s trees and using a pesticide contrary to an approved label.

EPA Director Regulatory Operations Gary Whytcross said it was positive that both parties had since undertaken to introduce measures to improve spray drift risk assessment and management.

“The proper use of pesticides is critical to ensure the operators are safe when applying pesticides and so is the community and the environment,” Mr Whytcross said.

“Pesticides can harm the environment so all care must be taken to ensure pesticides are not used in unsuitable weather conditions that can result in the pesticides leaving the intended application site.

“Safe pesticide use relies on users following the label, applying pesticides during the appropriate weather conditions and notifying neighbours of the spraying.”

The EPA regulates the use of herbicides and pesticides in NSW, including those used in agriculture and on public land, through the Pesticides Act 1999.

The community plays an important role in helping to monitor pesticide activities. Anyone with concern or knowledge of a spray drift incident or pesticide misuse in their local area should contact the EPA’s Environment Line on 131 555.

Anticoagulant rodenticide exposure in an Australian predatory bird increases with proximity to developed habitat
Michael T. Lohr
Science of the Total Environment 643 (2018) 134–144

Anticoagulant rodenticides (ARs) are commonly used worldwide to control commensal rodents. Second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) are highly persistent and have the potential to cause secondary poisoning in wildlife. To date no comprehensive assessment has been conducted on AR residues in Australian wildlife.
My aim was to measure AR exposure in a common widespread owl species, the Southern Boobook (Ninox boobook) using boobooks found dead or moribund in order to assess the spatial distribution of this potential threat. A high percentage of boobooks were exposed (72.6%) and many showed potentially dangerous levels of AR residue (N0.1 mg/kg) in liver tissue (50.7%). Multiple rodenticides were detected in the livers of 38.4% of boobooks tested. Total liver concentration of ARs correlated positively with the proportions of developed areas
around points where dead boobooks were recovered and negatively with proportions of agricultural and native land covers. Total AR concentration in livers correlated more closely with land use type at the spatial scale of a boobook’s home range than at smaller or larger spatial scales. Two rodenticides not used by the public (difethialone and flocoumafen) were detected in boobooks indicating that professional use of ARs contributed to secondary exposure. Multiple ARs were also detected in recent fledglings, indicating probable exposure prior to fledging. Taken together, these results suggest that AR exposure poses a serious threat to native predators in Australia, particularly in species using urban and peri-urban areas and species with large home ranges.

Walking time bombs’: bird lovers call for ban on poisons

https://www.theage.com.au/environment/conservation/walking-time-bombs-bird-lovers-call-for-ban-on-poisons-20200812-p55kyl.html

August 12 2020

When word got around the office a boobook owl had been spotted in a nearby inner-city street, everyone in the BirdLife office grabbed their binoculars and headed for the door.

Unsurprisingly, when staff at Australia’s largest bird conservation organisation hear an unusual bird has visited Melbourne’s CBD, they rush to see it (and have binoculars at work).

But there was something wrong with this owl. It sat perched only three metres off the ground, on a tree with no foliage.

“It was completely exposed and close to the ground – you wouldn’t usually see a nocturnal bird displaying that kind of behaviour,” says Birdlife campaigns advisor Andrew Hunter.

Later that day a passerby found it dead under a tree in a nearby park. Hunter, who is also a wildlife rescuer, wanted to get the owl’s body checked for poisoning from anticoagulant rodenticides, or rodent poisons.

So he took it back to the office freezer – used for keeping bird carcasses that will be taxidermied for educational purposes – and arranged for veterinary students at Melbourne University to do a pro bono dissection.

This found large haemorrhages under the skin and in the muscle of the owl’s keel, extending down the length of the left wing and around the carpus (wrist) of the right wing.

The tissues also had very high levels of of the anti-coagulant brodifacoum, enough to cause toxicity and account for the haemorrhages, the dissection report showed.

For Hunter and the other Birdlife staff, it was a first-hand experience of an issue their organisation has been campaigning on for years: the lethal effect of anticoagulant rodenticides, also called second-generation rat poisons, on birds like owls, kites and other birds of prey.

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority is currently examining these rodenticides on the basis of concerns for worker exposure, public health and environmental safety.

Birds like boobook owls and black-winged kites can devour multiple rats and mice that have taken bait, says BirdLife Australia’s Sean Dooley. And because the poison takes some time to work, the poisoned rats are like “walking time-bombs”.

It’s a long and painful death for the birds, Dooley says. “These second-generation poisons don’t break down quickly – some can stay in tissues and organs for months, even years.” They can also cause birds to become disorientated, meaning they are more likely to crash into structures and vehicles.

These household products have been banned in some jurisdictions in the US and Europe, but are available from Australian supermarkets and hardware stores. They work by inhibiting Vitamin K in the body and disrupting the normal coagulation process. Poisoned animals suffer from uncontrolled hemorrhaging.

Professional pesticide users would prefer anticoagulant rodenticides were taken off retail shelves and made less accessible to the public, says Eris Hess, associate director of the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association.

“The real question is why the bird is able to access the rodent. The general public is buying off supermarket shelves and using it incorrectly,” Mr Hess said. Professional users know they should collect the carcasses afterwards, he said.

The association would like a licence required for use, perhaps the safe chemical users licence, which most farmers already have.

All second-generation rodenticides should also be used in bait boxes to contain pests that have ingested poison, so they are not a risk to other animals or children, Mr Hess said.

Chemicals the most likely cause of mystery leaf loss in cotton towns, secret report finds

July 28 2020

https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/chemicals-the-most-likely-cause-of-mystery-leaf-loss-in-cotton-towns-secret-report-finds-20200726-p55fjk.html

Chemicals used in cotton farming are the most likely cause of trees losing their leaves in parts of central western NSW and may pose a threat to human health, according to a government report that has been blocked from the public since it was circulated internally two years ago.

The report by a technical specialist within the NSW Department of Industry is the first official analysis of a phenomenon that has mystified and troubled graziers around Narromine, Trangie and Warren, as far south as Darlington Point near Hay and as far north as Bourke.

The peppercorn, which is an exotic evergreen, and certain species of eucalyptus drop their leaves annually at a time that coincides with cotton farmers using aerial spray to defoliate their crop, raising concerns about other potential harms caused by exposure to the chemicals.

But the notion that spray drift might be responsible for denuding the trees is contentious in the state’s cotton belt. Narromine mayor Craig Davies, a former spray contractor, says leaf drop is caused by the drought.

The NSW Environment Protection Agency has repeatedly told complainants that the only way to prove spray drift is the cause of non-target species losing their leaves is to conduct tests within two days of the spray activity, which may be before the symptoms have appeared.

However, the NSW Department of Industry report, obtained by the Herald under freedom of information laws, concluded in May 2018 that the leaf loss was “definitely not a result of environmental conditions such as prolonged dry weather”.

“It was most likely the result of a large area spraying with temperature inversions moving fine particles of chemicals further than would be expected … Symptoms of peppercorn trees were not apparent in other non-cotton growing areas.”

The risks of spray drift included: conflict between farmer groups, the prospect of legal action, the potential for people to be selling produce with trace residue, and human health impacts as there were “unknown effects of chemical especially with low dose longer time exposures”. The report recommended a community mediation chaired by an independent person to minimise community unrest and reduce spray drift the next season.

But Bruce Maynard, a spokesman for the Lower Macquarie Overspray Group, said this had not occurred.

“The peppercorn trees are showing clear evidence that we’re being exposed to something on an annual basis and it’s across all our areas and towns,” Mr Maynard said. “In the long run, this is about two things: health and also our businesses, because we are at risk for things outside our control.”

The report did not name the chemicals that might have drifted off target. Cotton defoliants include the chemicals Thidiazuron, Dimethipin and Diuron, which has been linked to damage in the Great Barrier Reef and is proposed to be deregistered in the European Union from September.

Grazier Colin Hamilton said the leaf drop put beef producers in a difficult position when they had to declare their pasture free from contaminants because there was no confirmation that chemicals were present but the evidence suggested otherwise.

“But closer to home, the majority of people in our area drink the rainwater that runs off their roof,” Mr Hamilton said. “There’s the potential for human health impacts.”

However, Cotton Australia chief executive Adam Kay said there was “zero evidence” that agricultural chemicals were responsible for the leaf drop. Preventing off-target spray drift was a priority across agriculture to ensure the safety of communities and environments.

“The use of biotechnology and integrated pest management in cotton has reduced pesticide use by 95 per cent since 1993,” Mr Kay said.

The mayor’s contention that the drought was more likely to blame was also supported by Leslie Weston, a professor of plant biology at Charles Sturt University. Some of the affected trees were 10 kilometres from the nearest cotton farm.

“I don’t personally think that this particular herbicide would be killing trees unless they bordered the field and off-site spray was occurring, allowing root uptake or translocation from shoots,” Professor Weston said. “If herbicide damage was prevalent, one would typically also see damage on citrus or other perennials growing nearby.”

The NSW Environment Protection Agency said it had conducted three vegetation and water tests in the Narromine and Trangie areas in the past two years and no pesticides had been detected, but it was important for overspray complaints to be made within two days because the residue dissipated quickly.

“The EPA has committed to undertake pre- and post-spray inspections coming into the next spray season, to check the condition of vegetation and to collect vegetation samples for testing immediately after spraying,” an EPA spokesman said.

The chemical report Cotton Australia will not release

July 29 2020

The peak cotton industry body is refusing to release a report into the cause of trees losing their leaves in the central west of NSW, despite saying there was no evidence chemical sprays were to blame.

Graziers around the towns of Trangie, Warren and Narromine are concerned that some of the chemicals used in cotton farming are drifting off target, affecting other plant species and potentially compromising their health in an area reliant on rainwater for drinking.

A technical specialist from the NSW Department of Industry inspected the area in May 2018 and noted moderate to major leaf drop among peppercorn trees and lesser damage to cadaghi and lemon-scented eucalyptus, which was “most likely a result of large area spraying”.

The report was kept secret until obtained by the Herald under freedom of information laws. Cotton Australia chief executive Adam Kay said it contained “zero evidence” that agricultural chemicals were involved.

Cotton Australia did its own investigations around the same time in response to community concerns, commissioning a researcher from the University of New England to inspect.

But it has declined to release the report, despite numerous requests from the Lower Macquarie Overspray Group, which represents concerned locals.

Mr Kay said the inspection was not a formal investigation.

“We were provided some advice, but no samples were taken for chemical testing because it was too far after the alleged event and this is the job of the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA),” he said.

“This work by the researcher was in no means a formal report.”

However, a farmer whose property the researcher visited said samples were taken from his premises and several others.

“[The researcher] took three samples from my property and I phoned three times but the report has never seen the light of day,” said the farmer, who asked not to be named because he feared retribution in the close-knit cotton community. “We’ve got to get to the bottom of these reports.”

National Toxics Network co-ordinator Jo Immig said spray could drift up to 20 kilometres in inversion levels. The EPA should have obtained spray application records to find out what chemicals were being applied, she said.

“The idea that pesticides can be applied safely to paddocks and not move ‘off target’ is perhaps one of the greatest cons perpetrated by the chemical industry and regulators on the Australian public and environment,” Ms Immig said. “All ecological systems are inter-connected via the atmosphere, water and soil.”

“[The researcher] took three samples from my property and I phoned three times but the report has never seen the light of day,” said the farmer, who asked not to be named because he feared retribution in the close-knit cotton community. “We’ve got to get to the bottom of these reports.”

National Toxics Network co-ordinator Jo Immig said spray could drift up to 20 kilometres in inversion levels. The EPA should have obtained spray application records to find out what chemicals were being applied, she said.

“The idea that pesticides can be applied safely to paddocks and not move ‘off target’ is perhaps one of the greatest cons perpetrated by the chemical industry and regulators on the Australian public and environment,” Ms Immig said. “All ecological systems are inter-connected via the atmosphere, water and soil.”

Chemicals the most likely cause of mystery leaf loss in cotton towns, secret report finds

July 28 2020

https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/chemicals-the-most-likely-cause-of-mystery-leaf-loss-in-cotton-towns-secret-report-finds-20200726-p55fjk.html

Chemicals used in cotton farming are the most likely cause of trees losing their leaves in parts of central western NSW and may pose a threat to human health, according to a government report that has been blocked from the public since it was circulated internally two years ago.

The report by a technical specialist within the NSW Department of Industry is the first official analysis of a phenomenon that has mystified and troubled graziers around Narromine, Trangie and Warren, as far south as Darlington Point near Hay and as far north as Bourke.

The peppercorn, which is an exotic evergreen, and certain species of eucalyptus drop their leaves annually at a time that coincides with cotton farmers using aerial spray to defoliate their crop, raising concerns about other potential harms caused by exposure to the chemicals.

But the notion that spray drift might be responsible for denuding the trees is contentious in the state’s cotton belt. Narromine mayor Craig Davies, a former spray contractor, says leaf drop is caused by the drought.

The NSW Environment Protection Agency has repeatedly told complainants that the only way to prove spray drift is the cause of non-target species losing their leaves is to conduct tests within two days of the spray activity, which may be before the symptoms have appeared.

However, the NSW Department of Industry report, obtained by the Herald under freedom of information laws, concluded in May 2018 that the leaf loss was “definitely not a result of environmental conditions such as prolonged dry weather”.

“It was most likely the result of a large area spraying with temperature inversions moving fine particles of chemicals further than would be expected … Symptoms of peppercorn trees were not apparent in other non-cotton growing areas.”

The risks of spray drift included: conflict between farmer groups, the prospect of legal action, the potential for people to be selling produce with trace residue, and human health impacts as there were “unknown effects of chemical especially with low dose longer time exposures”. The report recommended a community mediation chaired by an independent person to minimise community unrest and reduce spray drift the next season.

But Bruce Maynard, a spokesman for the Lower Macquarie Overspray Group, said this had not occurred.

“The peppercorn trees are showing clear evidence that we’re being exposed to something on an annual basis and it’s across all our areas and towns,” Mr Maynard said. “In the long run, this is about two things: health and also our businesses, because we are at risk for things outside our control.”

The report did not name the chemicals that might have drifted off target. Cotton defoliants include the chemicals Thidiazuron, Dimethipin and Diuron, which has been linked to damage in the Great Barrier Reef and is proposed to be deregistered in the European Union from September.

Grazier Colin Hamilton said the leaf drop put beef producers in a difficult position when they had to declare their pasture free from contaminants because there was no confirmation that chemicals were present but the evidence suggested otherwise.

“But closer to home, the majority of people in our area drink the rainwater that runs off their roof,” Mr Hamilton said. “There’s the potential for human health impacts.”

However, Cotton Australia chief executive Adam Kay said there was “zero evidence” that agricultural chemicals were responsible for the leaf drop. Preventing off-target spray drift was a priority across agriculture to ensure the safety of communities and environments.

“The use of biotechnology and integrated pest management in cotton has reduced pesticide use by 95 per cent since 1993,” Mr Kay said.

The mayor’s contention that the drought was more likely to blame was also supported by Leslie Weston, a professor of plant biology at Charles Sturt University. Some of the affected trees were 10 kilometres from the nearest cotton farm.

“I don’t personally think that this particular herbicide would be killing trees unless they bordered the field and off-site spray was occurring, allowing root uptake or translocation from shoots,” Professor Weston said. “If herbicide damage was prevalent, one would typically also see damage on citrus or other perennials growing nearby.”

The NSW Environment Protection Agency said it had conducted three vegetation and water tests in the Narromine and Trangie areas in the past two years and no pesticides had been detected, but it was important for overspray complaints to be made within two days because the residue dissipated quickly.

“The EPA has committed to undertake pre- and post-spray inspections coming into the next spray season, to check the condition of vegetation and to collect vegetation samples for testing immediately after spraying,” an EPA spokesman said.

The chemical report Cotton Australia will not release

July 29 2020

The peak cotton industry body is refusing to release a report into the cause of trees losing their leaves in the central west of NSW, despite saying there was no evidence chemical sprays were to blame.

Graziers around the towns of Trangie, Warren and Narromine are concerned that some of the chemicals used in cotton farming are drifting off target, affecting other plant species and potentially compromising their health in an area reliant on rainwater for drinking.

A technical specialist from the NSW Department of Industry inspected the area in May 2018 and noted moderate to major leaf drop among peppercorn trees and lesser damage to cadaghi and lemon-scented eucalyptus, which was “most likely a result of large area spraying”.

The report was kept secret until obtained by the Herald under freedom of information laws. Cotton Australia chief executive Adam Kay said it contained “zero evidence” that agricultural chemicals were involved.

Cotton Australia did its own investigations around the same time in response to community concerns, commissioning a researcher from the University of New England to inspect.

But it has declined to release the report, despite numerous requests from the Lower Macquarie Overspray Group, which represents concerned locals.

Mr Kay said the inspection was not a formal investigation.

“We were provided some advice, but no samples were taken for chemical testing because it was too far after the alleged event and this is the job of the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA),” he said.

“This work by the researcher was in no means a formal report.”

However, a farmer whose property the researcher visited said samples were taken from his premises and several others.

2020 June: Holey Plains State Park Spray Drift from Pine Plantation. Pesticides: Glyphosate?, Metsulfuron Methyl?

Thousands of Trees in Reserve Threatened by Herbicide Spray Drift

https://www.foe.org.au/thousands_of_trees_in_reserve_threatened_by_herbicide_spray_drift

Friends of the Earth has uncovered a disturbing incident in the Holey Plains State Reserve, in Central Gippsland, Victoria. FoE has found an area of several hundred hectares, in the Reserve which appears to have been impacted by spray drift from an adjacent pine plantation which was recently aerially sprayed. Thousands of trees appear to have been impacted. The trees were slowly recovering after being severely burnt by bushfires which ravaged Holey Plains in early 2019.

The area was recently being visited by Friends of the Earth during koala surveys. The impact of the sprays can be seen mainly on a 2km front on the eastern side of the plantation indicating that herbicides are likely to have wafted in when a 500ha pine plantation, managed by Hancock Victorian Plantations was recently sprayed. This plantation is certified by Forest Stewardship Council.

Pine plantations of this size are usually aerially sprayed with herbicides including Glyphosate, Metsulfuron Methyl and Clopyralid. Another herbicide Glufosinate Ammonium is also sometimes used. After the pines have been established for a year or two, aerial application of pellitised Hexazinone then occurs. Hexazinone will then leach into the soil for a many months.

Friends of the Earth believes that the likely culprit of the spray drift is Glyphosate. A similar incident occurred in the King Lake National Park about 10 years ago. It was determined that coppicing eucalypts are highly susceptible to minute levels of Glyphosate. It is unclear whether the trees impacted at Holey Plains will survive the incident.

The incident also raises concerns about the use of herbicides near recently burnt areas along the eastern seaboard of the Australian continent after the massive bushfire disaster which occurred in late 2019/2020. FoE believes that there should be label changes made to the herbicide Glyphosate listing concerns about its use in areas where Eucalypts are recovering from fire.

Chemical Standards Officers from Biosecurity and Agricultural Services (Victorian State Government) are now investigating the incident.

“…Mercury was surveyed in soils close to the Tully River at 3 different depths (100, 200 and 300 mm). Additionally, total Hg (THg) and the labile fraction of Hg in water (measured by the diffusive gradient in thin film technique) were determined in the Tully River. A pristine site, the Tully Gorge National Park upstream of sugarcane fields, was selected for background Hg concentration estimation. In soils, Hg levels ranged from 18 to 264 μg kg− 1, with one of the soil samples being almost 10 times higher than at other sites at the surface level (199 μg kg− 1). Total and labile concentrations of Hg in water increased from the Hg-elevated soil sampling sites (0.085 μg L− 1 and 0.061 μg L− 1) to downstream sites (0.082 μg L− 1 and 0.066 μg L− 1), which is likely due to agricultural runoff. Indeed, except for the upstream control site, the THg concentration in water is over the limit permitted by the Australian freshwater quality guideline for protection of 99% species (0.06 μg L− 1). These findings point to the need to perform further research to reveal the mechanisms for release of Hg from soil and whether this might be causing important adverse effects to the Great Barrier Reef located in front of this river catchment…”

TasNetworks to pay compensation over use of cancer-linked herbicide

June 6 2020

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-05/tasnetworks-hydro-worker-payout-herbicide-cancer/12324788

A man in his 60s and the family of another who died in the 1980s will receive compensation over historical exposure to a herbicide contaminant while they were employees of Tasmania’s Hydro Electric Commission (HEC).

The two men worked for the HEC, now TasNetworks, on vegetation teams using the herbicide 2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) in the 1970s and 80s.

The dioxin TCDD, which is found in some batches of 2,4,5-T, has been linked to Hodgkin’s lymphoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and soft-cell sarcoma, TasNetworks said in a statement.

TasNetworks said the man aged in his 60s was a current employee, while the other man had already left the HEC before his death.

Both men had contracted one of the linked illnesses, the statement said.

“We deeply regret that a current and former employee contracted a cancer linked to this herbicide,” TasNetworks CEO Lance Balcombe said.

“Our current team member affected will be compensated, and TasNetworks will take a strong, supportive role in his ongoing treatment,” he said, adding the employee would keep working at the company

The State Government last year confirmed WorkSafe Tasmania was working with TasNetworks to examine the claims of multiple former Hydro workers who said chemical exposure had left them with chronic illnesses.

TasNetworks on Friday said it had completed a “comprehensive search and screening process over 18 month, supported by independent toxicology and medical advice”.

Mr Balcombe said that of 400 past and present employees contacted, 70 had chosen to be tested and that all but the one current employee was clear of the three conditions.

“We’re confident we’ve reached the vast majority of people who could’ve been affected,” he said.

TasNetworks said compensation would be determined by a legal framework and would remain confidential.

Former boss told employees ‘you can drink it’

David Vince was one of hundreds of government workers who used the herbicide while working for Hydro Electric Commission’s vegetation teams — without wearing any protective gear.

“None whatsoever,” he said. “We just used to go out, mix it down at the depot, and what run on the ground went down the drains.

“We were breathing it in eight hours a day plus we were taking our clothes home and washing them in our machines … it was with us 24/7 really.”

He said workers raised concerns with management but they were laughed off.

“One of the bosses, he said: ‘No, there’s nothing wrong with that, you can drink it!’

“One said to us: ‘Oh well, if you don’t like it you haven’t got a job’.”

Mr Vince said he believed his kidney problems were linked to using the herbicide.

“What I’d like to have seen is medical bills paid,” he said.

“I go to the specialist every couple of months … if they covered medical expenses, that would be good.”

In a statement, TasNetworks said: “[We] recognises that some people involved in the screening process are suffering from other medical conditions not linked to historical TCDD exposure.

“These are still our people, valued employees past and present. We intend to keep in contact, and explore other options for supporting those people into the future.

“The options we’re considering include funded health checks every two years, a 1300 phone number to a dedicated support officer, and making pro-active contact about any fresh medical or scientific information on TCDD and associated illnesses.”

Former hydro workers in Tasmania to launch compensation claims over chemical exposure

May 17 2020

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-05-17/hydro-workers-claim-chemical-damages/11123070

At least 19 former hydro workers in Tasmania are seeking compensation, saying they were exposed to dangerous chemicals which has left them with chronic health conditions.

The workers were all employed by the Hydro Electric Commission (HEC), known today as TasNetworks.

The chemicals were sprayed by workers in groups of three or four to cut undergrowth and trees underneath transmission lines.

The spraying occurred primarily between the 1950s and the 1970s, but in some cases up until the 1990s.

The State Government has confirmed WorkSafe Tasmania was working with TasNetworks to examine the claims.

Geoff Pratt, who lives in Latrobe on Tasmania’s north-west coast, is one of the workers affected.

He suffers from severe asthma, which he believes is linked to chemical exposure during work at the Hydro in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

“I was a young, fit healthy man, played footy, but my life has been shattered,” he said.

Dave Vince, another former worker who believes chemical exposure has led to his ill health, said his kidneys now work at 38 per cent.

“I remember just being covered in the chemical spray after working with the Hydro in the 1960s,” Mr Vince said.

“The worst part was you weren’t given any protective equipment and the chemicals would just flow down your back after spilling over the lip of the container.”

He and others want an apology.

“A lot of them have lost their husbands or partner a lot earlier than they probably should have done,” he said.

Graham Smith sprayed the chemicals from the start of the 1960s until 1974.

“It was hard, heavy work,” he said.

“We would work at least eight hours a day and would be just covered in the spray. It would make you feel dizzy.

“You would just be covered in the stuff, it would be flowing down your back.”

Mr Smith, Mr Vince and Mr Pratt are all taking TasNetworks to court over their exposure to the chemicals and have engaged a lawyer.

TasNetworks confirmed it was in discussions with 12 employees and seven former HEC workers about the chemical exposure.

But the Communications, Electrical and Plumbing Union (CEPU) of Australia said more than 40 former workers could be affected.

The union confirmed some of the former workers would be meeting TasNetworks toxicologist next week for tests.

The depletion of dieldrin and DDT concentrations in Kinglake soils

H. J. Grainger, G. Roberts and L. Callinan

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 40(1) 53 – 56
Published: 2000

Abstract

Twenty-two sites on 14 former potato growing properties at Kinglake, Victoria, with similar soil type, topography and history of chemical use, were soil tested for organochlorine chemicals during 1987–88 and again during 1997–98. The 95% confidence limits for the decline in concentrations of dieldrin and DDT in the soil were 5.5–41.5% and 29.1–48.5%, respectively. There were no significant differences between farms in the rate of depletion of either organochlorine. Reductions in both to 1997–98 were not significantly associated with the concentration in 1987–88.

A Drysdale secondary school likely had “harmful levels” of insecticides in the soil when it first opened in 1997, a Senate inquiry into a possible cancer cluster on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula has heard.

Gordon Legal senior partner Peter Gordon told the inquiry he was acting for the spouses of three former Bellarine Secondary College students who died from cancer.

He said Scott Beyer, Mitch Trickey and Tyanne Riddle all attended the school during its initial years of operation and all three died as young adults from different forms of cancer.

Mr Gordon told the inquiry that dangerous levels of carcinogens would likely have been present when the school first opened.

“It’s very likely to have been unsafe in the years 1997, 1998, 1999 when school children were first put in harm’s way,” he said.

Concerns about possible soil contamination from dieldrin — a pesticide previously used on farms which can contaminate the soil for decades — prompted the Department of Education and WorkSafe to conduct soil tests at Bellarine Secondary College, in 2018.

The report found pesticides, including dieldrin, were found in the soil, but in levels below what is considered harmful to human health.

Mr Gordon told the inquiry that while soil testing conducted in recent years found “negligible levels” of dieldrin and other organo-chlorine pesticides, levels would have been higher in previous decades.

“Based on our investigation there’s evidence of a disturbing number of cancer cases occurring in the Bellarine Secondary College cohort — that is, teachers and students — who were present at the Drysdale campus when it first opened in 1997 and the years that followed,” he told the inquiry.

“There’s clear evidence that the school population in that period was exposed to certain levels of organo-chlorine pesticides, of which dieldrin was one.

“It’s probable that exposure caused the cancer and death of at least some people in the Bellarine Secondary College cohort.”

Mr Gordon also argued previous studies which found no evidence of a cancer cluster on the Bellarine Peninsula had “serious limitations” because they focused on statistical data across a wide geographical area.

Mr Gordon told the inquiry he planned to negotiate with the Victorian Government on behalf of his clients, but if those negotiations broke down he expected to launch legal proceedings.

But he made it clear he did not believe there was any ongoing risk to students at the school today.

“I don’t think there is a hard and fast year where one can say the risk became an acceptable risk,” he said.

“The risk and the exposure levels, in my view, diminished over the years.”

‘Unusual’ investigation arose from media reports

The Senate inquiry is the result of a promise from both major parties made during the tightly-fought 2019 federal election campaign in the marginal seat of Corangamite.

Both candidates picked up on community concerns about a perceived higher rate of cancer on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton told the inquiry that while the community was originally worried about the level of dieldrin in the soil at Bellarine Secondary College, concerns had changed over time to include a widespread mosquito-spraying program around Barwon Heads.

He said claims of a possible cancer cluster on the Bellarine Peninsula were “quite unusual” because the department had not been approached by individuals — as is usually the case with cancer cluster claims — but had instead responded to multiple community concerns raised in the media.

“We were trying to piece together where the concerns were focused,” he said.

“That did change over time. Over the past 16 months there’s been a shift in concerns or there’s been multiple concerns expressed by different groups.”

Senator labels report an ’embarrassment’

Victorian Senator Sarah Henderson, who promised the inquiry when she was recontesting the seat of Corangamite before taking up a role in the Senate, questioned the credibility of a Cancer Council study which found no higher incidence of cancer in Barwon Heads.

The study was commissioned by the state’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and identified 315 new cancer cases diagnosed between 2001 and 2016, including six cases in people aged 10 to 34 years, in the town with a population of fewer than 4,000 people.

Senator Henderson said the Barwon Heads community’s biggest concern related to the mosquito-spraying program conducted by the local council, which ran from the 1980s to the mid-2000s.

“Most of the cancers that are of concern in the Barwon Heads community predominantly occurred prior to 2001 when this spraying program was underway,” Senator Henderson told the inquiry.

“This is such a poorly framed epidemiological study that it appears, and it’s almost designed to ensure, there’s no assessment at all of allegations of a potential cancer cluster in the period of the 1980 and 90s.”

The report’s author, Professor Roger Milne, told the inquiry DHHS had originally asked him to consider data from 1991 onwards.

But Professor Milne said there was a change in the way data was collated after 2001, making it more time-consuming and potentially problematic to compare cancer data before that date.

He told the inquiry he advised department that he could provide a more timely report if he only looked at data from 2001 onwards, a proposal the department accepted.

Senator Henderson said it was “extremely disappointing” the department had not taken into account many of the concerns raised by local residents.

“I would say that this is just an absolute embarrassment,” she told the inquiry.

Questions raised over ‘no cancer cluster’ findings

The inquiry also heard from Professor David Hill, a member of the expert advisory group which provides advice on potential cancer clusters to DHHS.

He said Professor Milne’s report was appropriate and “the conclusions are valid”.

Senator Henderson said it was shocking two decades of cancer data was not considered.

“Given that exposure [to chemicals used in mosquito spraying] first occurred from the early 1980s isn’t it the case that the Victorian Government has misled the community?” she asked.

“How can the community be assured there’s no cancer cluster?”

Professor Hill said the investigations were in line with the “standard response”.

I can’t agree with the proposition that the department have misled the community about the absence of a cancer cluster,” he said.

Professor Hill said one of the biggest issues was a lack of clarity around exactly what the community was concerned about

“Our group has never seen the age distribution of the cluster that people in the community perceived … so it’s very difficult to plan an analysis,” he said.

“It would be extremely helpful to know what the community’s evidence of a cluster is. And that evidence really needs to be based on the number of patients, the type of cancers they had, the date of diagnosis and their age.”

A local community group headed by Ross Harrison has been collating evidence of cancer and auto-immune disease diagnoses in Barwon Heads.

He told the inquiry the figures were alarming and there was a need for a more in-depth analysis.

Promise of further investigations

City of Greater Geelong planning, design and development director Gareth Smith told the inquiry all the products used in mosquito-spraying program were approved by the relevant Commonwealth Government agencies.

He said the council had provided all the information it had, including prior to council amalgamations in 1993, but many of the historic documents has not been preserved.

“We want to be transparent. We have an obligation to our community,” he said.

Under questioning, Professor Sutton told the inquiry he would agree to commission a report that considered data going back to the 1980s, provided there was a community desire for the information and it was “methodologically feasible”.

A second public hearing will be held once coronavirus restrictions are relaxed and the Senate committee is able to travel to the Bellarine Peninsula.

The Senate committee is due to hand down its report in November.

Australian farmers warned the misuse of pesticides will see overseas markets turn away

https://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2019-07-26/chemicals-on-crops-jeopardise-export-markets/11270722

An industry group is warning farmers that they are jeopardising overseas markets by breaching maximum residue levels, resulting in too much chemical found on the end product.

The European Commission describes a maximum residue level (MRL) “as the highest level of a pesticide residue that is legally tolerated in or on food or feed when pesticides are applied correctly”.

It is not just grain crops that have MRLs.

All products from fruit and vegetable crops to meat can have traces of pesticides.

Paul McIntosh from Pulse Australia and the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative said while Australia had a 98.5 per cent to 99 per cent compliance rate, it was the 1 per cent that were causing disruptions.

“It’s a big issue and it’s really starting to impact on some of our export markets, particularly for our pulse crops overseas,” Mr McIntosh said.

“The issue is we are getting picked up on [being over] our MRLs … particularly with our chickpeas and our mung beans.

“We can’t afford that 1 or 1.5 per cent, we need to get it perfect, we need to be 100 per cent now.

“If we don’t change and the crops go overseas — our clean and green image is going to be severely damaged and we are going to restrict markets.

Farmer fined for alleged misuse of pesticides

The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority (EPA) recently fined a farmer for the alleged incorrect use of pesticides on stored barley grain.

Doolin Farming at North Star was fined $3,500 after the EPA was alerted to elevated phosphine residues in a delivery to Graincorp in Queensland.

In a written statement the EPA said “it is alleged the barley grower had not complied with several requirements relating to the use of pesticides — including that the farmer was not following the directions for use on the pesticide labels, did not hold a current accreditation to use pesticide and did not make a record of the application of the pesticide.”

Srinivas Boyapalli is the Trading and Export Manager for Olam Australia, a company which exports pulses, chickpeas, fava beans, mung beans and lentils.

Mr Boyapalli said the current attention on glyphosate meant countries were taking extra notice of maximum residue levels.

“We have seen one particular issue last year with lentils, which went to India,” he said.

“The importer tested the product and it came out with a glyphosate residue limit [breach] and it was reported to the government, and then the government said the cargo had to be returned or dumped.

“It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to take back [or dump] rejected cargo.”

Calls for standardised maximum residue levels to make trade easier

However, Mr Boyapalli explained this incident was particularly difficult because India did not have a clear MRL set for glyphosate.

“When they don’t have a maximum residue level it defaults to zero,” he said.

“If it reverts back to zero tolerance it cuts out the trade … when our growers are using glyphosate here to control the weeds.”

Most countries set their own MRL, making it difficult for marketers with the levels constantly changing.

Mr Boyapalli said there is a push for each country to set a standard MRL to make it clear for agricultural marketers.

“Global Pulse Confederation (GPC) is the peak global body and it is working with all countries to have a standardised MRL,” he said.

“GPC [is also] lobbying governments and the United Nations body to accept the minimum residue level limits for all pulse commodities.

“It would be much easier for the trade because if we are sending lentils to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh — it should be the same and it would be easy to follow and easy to explain to growers what the limits are.

2020 February: Senate Inquiry into Possible Bellarine Peninsula Cancer Cluster – Mosquito spraying?

Senate inquiry into possible Bellarine Peninsula cancer cluster now open

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-09/bellarine-peninsula-cancer-cluster-senate-inquiry-begins/11931164

Illness has been a major part of Danielle Livingstone’s life.

The palliative care nurse spends her working hours caring for the terminally ill, her adult daughter has Crohn’s disease, her son had ulcerative colitis and three years ago Ms Livingstone was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The idyllic riverside court where she lived in Barwon Heads, on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula, had 10 houses and multiple cases of cancer and auto-immune disease.

And after a number of young Barwon Heads locals died from cancer in the space of just a few years, she, like many others in the small coastal community, became concerned the region’s farming history or mosquito spraying programs could have contributed to an increased level of illness.

Amid the community angst, both candidates for a tightly-fought election campaign in the ultra-marginal seat of Corangamite promised a Senate inquiry to investigate the issue.

Ms Livingstone said the inquiry was needed.

“There’s been a lot of community talk,” she said.

“There’s been conversations, many conversations, over the years like ‘is this healthy?'”

Council slams ‘irresponsible’ claims

Mangroves behind Ms Livingstone’s yard were routinely treated with chemicals by the Bellarine Shire and later the City of Greater Geelong — often at the request of the community, who wanted to keep the mosquitoes at bay and minimise the risk of mosquito-borne diseases.

It included aerial treatment, where pellets were dropped from helicopters.

“Where we were was a very heavily sprayed area,” she said.

“You would see the helicopters dropping the pellets.

“You would wake up in the morning and there’d be this low, sort of fog around Barwon Heads.”

Ms Livingstone became particularly concerned when she saw the reported cases of cancer and auto-immune disease plotted out on a map of Barwon Heads.

“It blew my mind. I was shocked, really, really shocked,” she said.

It’s a community fear that authorities have been trying hard to placate in recent years.

The City of Greater Geelong has repeatedly said there was “no scientific basis” to claims linking mosquito treatment to human health impacts, even hosting community meetings to answer questions from frightened residents.

Planning and development director Gareth Smith said any suggestions of a link were “irresponsible” and had the potential to hurt those who had suffered from the impact of serious disease.

“All of the chemicals used in our mosquito treatment programs have been approved as safe products by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority,” he said.

“These products only affect mosquito larvae and do not harm people, pets or the general environment.”

But he also said council could “empathise” with the community, which was still hurting.

“Sadly, the occurrence of cancer and immunological diseases is not uncommon in any community,” he said.

“The devastating impacts can be widespread and long-lasting.”

A long list of investigations

The Senate inquiry is now open and will investigate the possibility of a cancer cluster on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Submissions close at the end of this month, public hearings will follow and a report is due in August.

But this will not be the first time a government agency has investigated claims of a cancer cluster in the popular holiday spot, located about 90 minutes south of Melbourne.

In January 2019, Victoria’s chief health officer initiated a review of cancer incidence rates for total cancers; breast and liver cancer; and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, brain cancers and leukaemia.

It used data from the Australian Cancer Atlas and found “no evidence of a higher rate of cancer overall” and “no high number of the specific cancers of interest” on the Bellarine Peninsula than expected based on the average cancer rate in Australia.

A Cancer Council Victoria report from October 2019 also found “no substantive evidence of increased [cancer] incidence” across the peninsula.

This finding was endorsed by an expert advisory group established by the state’s Health Department.

Concerns about possible soil contamination from dieldrin — a pesticide previously used on farms which can contaminate the soil for decades — also prompted the Education Department and WorkSafe to conduct soil tests at Bellarine Secondary College, in the nearby town of Drysdale, in 2018, in a bid to allay community concerns stemming from the fact that a number of the young people who became sick had attended the school.

The report found pesticides, including dieldrin, were found in the soil, but in levels below what is considered harmful to human health.

What will the inquiry achieve?

The Senate inquiry will be chaired by Greens senator Rachel Siewert and will look at residents’ concerns, the incidence of cancer in the area, possible environmental factors and the Victorian chief health officer’s investigation.

Local surf shop owner Ross Harrison, who has led the public campaign for answers, said previous data analyses have not taken into account the holiday town’s transient population.

“We’ve had a mass migration in, and a mass migration out of the township so those people that are presented with disease end up with a different postcode,” he said.

“Also, in coastal townships we have many holiday-makers with houses who have holidayed here for 40 and 50 years, so when they present with disease they present with that disease in their hometown.”

He hopes the bipartisan inquiry will provide the community with some answers.

“We just look forward to a forensic examination of the issues … this can’t be a desktop review,” he said.

“What we are arguing is that there has been a chemical exposure and the epidemiology figures show that so a diligent forensic investigation would be the minimum, I’d imagine.”

Ms Livingstone also hopes this inquiry will put an end to some of the uncertainty.

“I’m just hoping that the truth will be revealed really and that people can tell their story,” she said.

“There’s just so many people down here who’ve been affected by it, who’ve lost loved ones, young people dying unnecessarily and young kids and everyone being sick.

“It’s too much to not be strange.”

Bellata farmer fined for pesticide spray drift

https://www.northerndailyleader.com.au/story/6552591/environmental-watchdog-fines-farmer-for-pesticide-drift/

Dec 19 2019

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has reminded farmers not to damage neighbouring crops or the environment while spraying pesticides after the Belatta incident

EPA regional director Adam Gilligan said spraying crops in the wrong conditions could cause damage to other crops on nearby farms.

The fine followed complaints from another farmer about a neighbour applying pesticides using a spray boom in windy conditions on September 10.

The farmer reported the spray crossed onto his property, impacting a native vegetation corridor.

The EPA’s investigation found the pesticide in the native vegetation corridor over 50 metres away and that while the spraying was taking place, the wind conditions were gusty and variable and at times blowing toward the vegetation corridor.

“Safe pesticide use relies on users spraying in appropriate weather conditions and following the label instructions,” Mr Gilligan said.

“The proper use of pesticides helps to ensure the safety of the operators, the environment and the local community.”

Mr Gilligan said the $750 fine was a reminder of the importance of being a good neighbour when applying or using pesticides.

Penalty notices are one of several tools the EPA can use to achieve environmental compliance.

If you are concerned about illegal pesticide use, or you have knowledge of an incident, please call the 24/7 Environment Line on 131 555.

Pesticide use at Hearnes Lake non-compliant

September 5 2019

An investigation into a fish kill at Hearnes Lake, north of Coffs Harbour, has found 25 instances of alleged non-compliance with pesticide use.

Investigations were carried out by the EPA, following the fish kill in March last year, but found no evidence to directly link the alleged non-compliances with the dead fish.

The EPA says they were unable to identify the cause or sources of the high levels of chlorpyrifos found in the fish samples – however the pesticide is used in horticulture and for residential termite treatments – both of which occur in the area.

2018/19 – Barmah Victoria (Pesticide – Soil Fumigant, Nematocide)

“Single detection of 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane in the raw water. At the time of the detection powdered activated carbon was operational in the treatment plant. The risk of WTP breakthrough was low, and all subsequent samples were below the limit of reporting. DBCP Is not listed in the ADWG but the WHO standard was used instead.”  https://www.gvwater.vic.gov.au/Portals/0/GV-Water/Documents/Reports/Water%20Quality%20Annual%20Report%20201819%20Goulburn%20Valley%20Water%20-%20Final%20PDF.pdf?ver=2019-10-30-085222-843

1,2-Dibromo-3-chloropropane (DBCP) was used in the past as a soil fumigant and nematocide on crops; it is no longer used except as an intermediate in chemical synthesis. Acute (short-term) exposure to DBCP in humans results in moderate depression of the central nervous system (CNS) and pulmonary congestion from inhalation, and gastrointestinal distress and pulmonary edema from oral exposure. Chronic (long-term) exposure to DBCP in humans causes male reproductive effects, such as decreased sperm counts. Testicular effects and decreased sperm counts were observed in animals chronically exposed to DBCP by inhalation. Available human data on DBCP and cancer are inadequate. High incidences of tumors of the nasal tract, tongue, adrenal cortex, and lungs of rodents were reported in a National Toxicology Program (NTP) inhalation study. EPA has classified DBCP as a Group B2, probable human carcinogen.

Australian Record for Diuron in drinking water

Date of Non-Compliance: February & March 2013

Date of Notification: 5 November 2013

Scheme: Mackay – Nebo Rd Treated Water – Diuron and Atrazine (pesticides)

390 μg/L & 350 μg/L. These levels are 19.5 and 17.5 times over guidelines levels.

Guideline levels for both pesticides are 20 μg/L.

Routine monitoring of drinking water detected Diuron and Atrazine in the treated water at Nebo Rd WTP at elevated levels which exceed the ADWG 2011 Health guideline value of 20 μg/L and 20 μg/L respectively. High levels of chemicals were also detected in the sample of the incoming raw water to the WTP collected on the same day as the treated water. Analysis of rainfall data for Mackay indicates that prior to the detections a significant rainfall event occurred which is likely to have washed sediments and chemicals into the Pioneer River which is the raw water source for Nebo Rd WTP.

A failure of the mass spectrometer at the Mackay Water and Waste Services Scientific and Analytical Services Laboratory (SAS) resulted in samples collected from August 2012 to April 2013 to not be analysed by SAS and instead sent to QLD Health laboratory for analysis. This resulted in a delay in obtaining results and analysing the results to identify non-compliances.
