After a diesel spill at Lancing Business Park reached the nearby Brooklands Park in May, Adur & Worthing Council’s environmental team are continuing to monitor the pollution.
Thorough checks on all the wildlife in the lake have been undertaken and, thanks to effective control measures and a swift response from the Environment Agency and other organisations, there has been minimal damage to the local ecosystem.
Containment measures will stay in place for the next few months and will gradually be reduced over time.
Worthing Borough Council also remains committed to the wider transformation of the park through its masterplan.
The incident remains under investigation by the Environment Agency.
