News and updates
6 April 2021 - Pollution in the Pond - The Rangers and Environment Agency (EA) are aware there is currently a contaminant in the pond, please keep dogs out of the water and refrain from feeding wildlife.
The pollution incident is currently under investigation by the EA, the source of the pollution has been identified and has been tracked back to a Thames Water inlet. These organisation are now working together to see if they can identify the cause of contamination.
On the 12 April an EA officer went to the pond to deploy a basic spill kit, their operations team will continue to monitor the situation and decide if more measures are needed.
We will make any further information available from the Environment Agency as soon as we are made aware. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
