Otherwise you will find the current status in the press releases of BUKEA at: Please report water pollution and fish deaths in large bodies of water
  • to the Authority for the Environment, Climate, Energy and Agriculture, Tel. 428 40 2300
  • Outside working hours to the police, Tel. 110.
If smaller bodies of water are affected (such as bathing lakes, streams, retention basins, ditches, ponds), inform the responsible district directly if possible. Telephone numbers can be found in the leaflet - Fish mortality and water pollution - (see link).
