Why Are The Fish Sick? Local Tip Suspected

t a broader picture as well as a quicker answer."

SEPA has already commissioned a study of hydrological conditions in the landfill site and there is strong evidence that a small amount of leakage is seeping through the topsoil layer. This supports the suspicion that the landfill is to blame.

The current investigation has been divided into ten separate studies. In one study, researchers will carry out further investigations into what might cause the disturbances in the fish. One theory is that pesticides could be the cause. Another project will therefore concentrate on looking into the use of such products by local businesses, drawing up a list of possible pollutants. These will then be analysed in leakage, lake water and sediment and tested on the fish.

Other studies include alternative handling of the leakage from the landfill site, controlling and stopping leakage, a survey of the landfill site and a general description of leakage and sediment, information to the public and scientific review.
