The presence of a golden alga was discovered in the Czernica reservoir (Lower Silesian Voivodeship). The Crisis Management Team of the Ministry of Climate and Environment recommended cutting it off from the Oder River.
The former gravel pit is a branch of the Oder River. For now, a net has been set up at the place where they connect, which is to prevent the fish from entering the contaminated water. Now, however, it has been recommended to completely shut off with an earthen embankment.
