This is the fourth day that weather has postponed the sixth operation which was scheduled to start on Tuesday.

The targeted aerial spray zone covers some 600 hectares and affects 3,000 residential and business properties in parts of Te Atatu, Glendene, Kelston, Waterview, the Avondale Peninsula, low lying land alongside the north western motorway and the Waikumete Cemetery.
