Second case of pollution in Limburg streams

Several streams in Limburg have been polluted for the second time in two weeks. Hundreds of fish died in the latest incident, this time from ammonia. The source of the ammonia is not known. Two weeks ago diesel from a leaking tank was responsible for the pollution.

In both cases, the pollution came from Belgium and the local water authority is in talks with Belgium authorities.
