On Tuesday, inspectors of the Provincial Inspectorate for Environmental Protection in Zielona Góra confirmed the ingress of extinguishing waters into the small Gęśnik river. It is not a tributary of the Oder, but its water flows through the Łącza and Zimny ​​Potok to the second largest Polish river.

The tests confirmed: the waters of the Gęśnik River polluted by firefighting waters

On Friday, the Zielona Góra VIEP published a document with the results of water tests from Gęśnik. “The waters of the river collected at the height of Zielona Góra – Przylep confirm their contamination by extinguishing waters” – we read in the information posted on social media.

As calculated, the studies showed high concentrations of heavy metals, such as mercury, copper, nickel, zinc, cadmium, lead; aromatic hydrocarbons and petroleum hydrocarbons.

In the sample taken in Czerwieńsk, further down the river, “exceedances were found for heavy metals – lead, copper, nickel, cadmium – with the measured values ​​of cadmium being more than one hundred times lower than in the sample taken at the height of Przylepu”.

The waters of the Łącza River near the village of Płoty were also examined. The tests did not confirm their contamination with extinguishing waters.

The research carried out by VIOŚ shows that sanitary and communal wastewater has not been contaminated either.
