A Co Londonderry farmer pleaded guilty and was today fined £1,500 plus an Offenders Levy of £15 at Coleraine Magistrates’ Court.

William Millar Henry from Ballyrashane Road, Coleraine was fined for causing a polluting discharge to a waterway.

On 11 February 2016, Water Quality Inspectors (WQIs), acting on behalf of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) inspected a waterway adjacent to 46 Ballyrashane Road, Coleraine and observed grey fungus in the waterway. The discharge was traced to farm premises owned by Mr Henry.

A sample taken at the time of the incident confirmed that the discharge contained poisonous, noxious or polluting matter which was potentially harmful to fish life in the receiving waterway.

Anyone wishing to report a pollution incident can call the 24 hour Water Pollution Hotline on 0800 80 70 60.
