Chemicals – spray drift
Sprayed chemicals are extensively used in agriculture and horticulture and can drift over neighbouring properties, waterways and water tanks. Spray drift can affect human, animal and environmental health.
The health impacts of exposure depend on how and where the chemical is applied, the amount of drift, the weather and the toxicity of the chemical. If you have been exposed to chemical sprays through spray drift, there are a number of agencies you can contact for help.
