Walked the Ladyburn as far the Carslogie burn today. Sadly it was running milky white at the Sports Ground area. Reported this to the SEPA POLLUTION HOTLINE 0800 80 70 60.
SEPA investigated early next day, but surprise surprise, after more overnight rain the burn was well up. SEPA have put it down to a “colloidal suspension of Soil” or as we say in Fife, muddy watter. On the positive side it is raining and the burns are finally coming up. SEPA have responded relatively quickly, even though it was not possible be sure of what may have caused it a day later.
Members please note the SEPA POLLUTION hot line number, 0800 80 70 60 keep it with your permit and use it to report problems on the river to SEPA yourself as every minute counts. they will respond. Phone the secretary or committee members afterwards.
