Blackwater River

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

These are some pictures taken of the Blackwater river a tributary of the Moyola on Thursday24th May
We were convinced there was pollution coming down this river, as you will see from the pictures it is very dirty.
Dr Richard Mc Faul water quality inspector from N I E A visited the site on Thursday and assured us that this is iron oxide coming up from the bed of the river at this time of year.
We would be interested to hear your views on this.
Could anyone who is crossing over these streams please keep an eye out for pollution,  In low water it is very dangerous and we could get a fish kill very easily.
