Over the weekend of 15th and and 16th June, 2019 a very serious pollution took place on the canal in the Plank Lane Marina area.
Many hundreds of fish were lost the Canal and River Trust quoted a figure of 1000 fish deaths. This followed a previous incident several weeks earlier. On that occasion the EA were aware of the problem earlier and responded quickly; aeration was introduced almost immediately on a 24 hour basis.
On this occasion, however, chemicals were used rather than aeration and fish losses were much greater. The losses included a range of species and a greater range of sizes – with some very good sized fish being lost.
Will members please note that the EARLIER any POLLUTION IS REPORTED THE MORE EFFECTIVE CA N BE THE RESPONSE FROM THE EA AND CANAL AND RIVER TRUST
ANY CASES SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE EA immediately on
