What is the origin of the Sauer pollution near Martelange?

After petrol has been spilled into the Sauer near Martelange, DP MP Gusty Graas wanted to know what the origin of the pollution is and what impact it has on the Sauer's biosphere.

« Tel que communiqué par les services de Madame la Ministre, la Sûre a été polluée le 24 janvier 2023 par un déversement d’hydrocarbures sur le territoire belge près de Rombach-Martelange.

Dans ce contexte, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

  • Les services de Madame la Ministre sont-ils en contact avec les autorités belges afin d’identifier l’origine de la pollution ?
  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle informer que s’est-il passé exactement ? Quand est-ce que l’incident a eu lieu ?
  • Quel en est l’impact sur le cours d’eau en question, sa faune et sa flore ?
  • Quelles conséquences juridiques cet incident aura-t-il ? »
