NB Power ‘do not spray’ List
- If you have a concern about spraying on an NB Power easement that crosses your property, call her manager Rick Doucet at 470-8748 and they will have a look at it.
- NB Power is subject to strict spraying guidelines that are prescribed by NB DOE. NB Power spraying contractors are not subject to the same strict guidelines.
- There is no information about the NB Power spraying program on their website. Planned spraying will be listed in newspapers.
CBC reporter Shane Fowler stated that, through an access to information request, they learned that some but not all requests to be added to the ‘do not spray’ list were granted.
