Welsh water fined £180,000 for river pollution incident

Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water has been fined £180,000 and ordered to pay £26,000 in costs after causing a 2018 river pollution incident that killed 3,000 fish – the largest fish kill recorded in North Wales.

The company pleaded guilty to breaches in environmental legislation at Llandudno Magistrates Court. It had been found to have illegally discharged crude, settled sewage from its Five Fords wastewater treatment plant, affecting 9km of the river Clywedog.
