Chesterfield Canal pollution

Published: Friday, 06 August 2010

THE summit pound of the Chesterfield Canal at Kiverton is at present closed owing to third party pollution.

This occurred yesterday (Wednesday) by the Norwood feeder (pictured), and the pound is closed to prevent the pollution spreading down the locks into the rest of the waterway

British Waterways are working closely with the Environment Agency to clean up the pound and it's hoped that the pound will be re opened within two days.
