£45,320 fine issued after NRW's efforts to tackle pollution

GP Biotec Ltd received a fine of £45,320 following a recent court case for illegal discharges to surface and groundwater. GP Biotec Ltd polluted a 5Km stretch of the River Llynfi near Talgarth as well as a private drinking water supply by spreading organic matter at inappropriate rates and during unsuitable weather conditions.  These activities caused nutrient levels to build up and enter the river and groundwater supply after heavy rain which caused a reduction in water quality and the number of invertebrates in the river.
