Here’s a link to an incident that took place at Catrine Bonded Warehouse in 2011. The article relates to the court proceedings following pollution of the River Ayr. http://www.scotsman.com/news/environment/7-140-bottles-of-whisky-spilled-into-river-ayr-1-3280587
At no point did anyone notify ART of this spill however we have complained to SEPA on several occasions about pollution seeping through the ground to the river from this warehouse. As we weren’t informed at the time, we have no way of quantifying the damage to the fish stocks and are unsure if SEPA’s ecologists found any dead fish or invertebrates. We understand that this prosecution was taken by SEPA’s COMAH team rather than the local office.
