PostSubject: River Colne polluted at Carpenders Park   Mon Jul 06, 2015 7:26 am

We're getting reports that the Colne was polluted on Friday night at Carpenders Park, near Watford.

From Mike Heylin, (now secretary of the Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative http://www.colnevalleyfisheriesconsultative.org )
Friday's thunderstorms led to a storm surge from the Blackbirds Farm sewage works above and at Watford.

Fish are reported as dying in the river and crays are crawling out. Particularly bad on the Carpender's Park stretch of the river.  EA is aware and working on it.


This from Waford Piscators:
Sadly I have to report we do have issues due to the pollution incident: Water Management had been advised by anglers belonging to Carpenters Park as well as ourselves.They had already started to check our sections and its not good news...

Crayfish dead in traps
Roach, Pike dead - Quantity to be confirmed
Cloudy foul smelling water
Our Water Management Team have taken reading of the oxygen level and its at 2%
I have recorded the incident with the EA- Alex Haig our reference number is 1351846
I have requested they advise John Ellis CRT- As well as receiving this email

Having just been awarded a grant from the Wild trout trust for river improvements with the help of Rob Pearson to say we are totally gutted is not even covering the feelings of our lads. The EA in preparation for the river works conducted a fish survey in May and I have a copy which will at least show that the river was in excellent condition prior.

Could anyone advise me of the contact details for the treatment works so that I can advise them of the situation - I will contact the Angling Trust legal team Monday and register the event in case we need to refer to them for legal assistance later.

Ed, have you heard anything further on this incident? I did a web search yesterday but found nothing new.
