Pollution from anaerobic digestion plant killed 18,000 fish in the Teifi

A company responsible for a major pollution spill on the River Teifi will have to pay £40,000 following the incident – though no prosecution has been brought.

Pencefn Feeds Ltd, near Tregaron has paid the sum after an investigation by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) into the incident back in December 2016.

Around 18,000 fish are thought to have been killed on a five-mile stretch of the Teifi when 44,000 gallons of pollutant leaked from an anaerobic digestion plant.

Terrible new coming from West Wales. Hopefully this news will encourage other sites around the country to tighten up their environmental processes.
