Pollution of the Nothomb stream: what are the reasons and what will be the consequences?

It appears around 100.000 litres of liquid manure ended up in the Nothomb stream around Holtz. DP MP Gusty Graas wanted to know what the origins are and what the consequences are.

« Dans son communiqué de presse du 1er décembre 2021, la Fédération luxembourgeoise des pêcheurs sportifs (FLPS) dénonce le déversement de quelque 100.000 litres de purin dans la Nothomb (« Noutemerbaach ») près de Holtz.

Au vu de ce qui précède, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle confirmer les faits énoncés ci-dessus ?
  • Les services de Madame la Ministre sont-ils en contact avec les autorités belges afin d’identifier l’origine de la pollution ?
  • Que s’est-il passé exactement ? Quand est-ce que l’incident a eu lieu ?
  • Quel en est l’impact sur le ruisseau en question, sa faune et sa flore, ainsi que les cours d’eau en aval, tel que l’Atert, toujours fortement affectée par le déversement en mars dernier d’eaux usées d’une installation de bio-méthanisation ?
  • Quelles conséquences juridiques cet incident aura-t-il ? »
