Officers from Natural Resources Wales have identified the cause of an oil spill, which let 3,500 litres of oil into a river near Crickhowell on Thursday.
The cause of the spill has been traced to a disused oil tank.
The incident has already had a significant impact on the stream, killing many fish and affecting people's gardens.
An investigation is taking place after an oil spill which has polluted approximately 850 metres of river in Crickhowell.
An estimated 3,500 litres of oil has escaped into the river, and the surrounding area, also affecting nearby gardens.
Officers at Natural Resources Wales say they're making efforts to prevent more oil reaching the river, but the impacts are already evident.
Many people called to report the incident earlier today, which is causing an oily sheen on top of the water and a strong odour.
The source of the pollution has been identified, but the oil has now worked its way downstream, affecting the main River Usk.
