Natural Resources Wales (NRW) says staff remain on site monitoring a clean-up operation which is being carried out after a river pollution incident in Ceredigion.
It says effluent was released into a stream in the Lampeter area on Tuesday.. Much of it flowed into the Afon Dulas which enters the Teifi in Lampeter.
There is no confirmation at this point about the extent of the impact but no dead fish have been seen or reported.
However, more effluent remains around the affected area in fields and ditches and NRW officers are monitoring and reviewing works carried out by a specialist company to prevent this reaching the wider environment.
Our efforts.. are focused on monitoring the rivers and streams in the area to assess any impact. We are also working with the site operators to keep as much of it out of local streams and rivers as we can.
Our officers are collecting evidence on site that will be used as part of a review into what caused this incident.
Our environment is one of Wales’ greatest assets – we need to look after it so it can continue to support our wildlife, communities and economy.
