Environmental Claims personnel in our Stafford office have worked closely with the Sittingbourne Team to provide emergency response following an accidental escape of silage leachate which has impacted several fishing lakes. The high ammonia and chemical oxygen content of the slurry has caused localised loss of high value fishing stocks. Ecologia is deploying specialist aeration equipment in order to re-establish adequate dissolved oxygen level and reduce ammonia in many of the impacted lakes to prevent further loss of fish. The equipment will be operated 24/7 as the low dissolved oxygen in the lakes is expected to be made worse by the very hot weather forecasted for this week.
