Bradley Stoke Matters & Little Stoke Gifford Matters shared Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group's post. ... See MoreSee Less

Oil leak update. We are very touched by the concern everyone has shown for the brooks and lake and the wildlife that uses them during the current oil spill event. This one has lasted for much longer than previous events, but is still taking a while to trace the origin. The Environment Agency has been contacted many times, both for the brooks on our reserve and also at 40 Acres. The council (Town and South Glos) are also aware. I spoke to the Environment Agency yesterday and they explained what has been done so far to trace the spill. Both they and Wessex Water are still conducting investigations up stream of the 40 Acres reserve to try to determine the source of the oil. As the oil is thin and easily mixed with water when the brook is turbulent and much of the brook is culverted, this is unfortunately a slow process. With events like this, it is very important that the public help by reporting direct to the Environment agency. Investigations can then be conducted straight away. If you spot a worsening of this spill, please phone 0800 80 70 60 and quote incident reference number 1594021. Thank you again for your concern and help.
