POLLUTION OF SHILLBROOK AT WILLOW MEADOWS – UPDATE 7 FEB 2019
We are writing to advise dog walkers in Willow Meadows that it is still not safe to let your pets in the water at the top field. Although Thames Water have used booms across the flow into the Brook, there is still a small amount of fuel escaping. Just to reiterate, the water upstream of the leak is fine, it is only the section (shown on the map by a double headed red arrow) in the last field before you reach the perimeter path that is affected.

Willow Meadows alert for dog walkers
We have learnt today (Friday 18 January) that there is a serious fuel spill into the Shill Brook from land owned by Thames Water. The brook is badly polluted in the last field of Willow Meadows (nearest RAF Brize Norton) so please do not let your dogs in the water as it may make them ill. Thames Water have been alerted today and will hopefully take action to rectify the situation by the end of the day. Please pass the word to others that may use the Meadows.
