Something Nasty in the River Bush 2?

Moyle Council Official Replies

"Council has no responsibility for dealing with water pollution incidents. This lies with NIEA.

I responded to the request made by Cllr X at the Moyle District Council meeting of 24th May and visited the River Bush at Bushmills on the morning of the 25th. I confirmed that foam was present on the surface of the river.

On returning to the office I contacted a member of NIEA staff who advised me that the Agency had already received and investigated a similar complaint. My understanding was that no significant incident, if any, had occurred.

Cllr X was advised of this on the 26th."
