Newbury Pond, The Chase National Trust Park Centre

Pond Bio Remediation Programme

This programme of treatment is being applied at the National Trust Park by Waste Management Total Solutions, Bio Remediation Division, due to a recent spillage of sewage into the park land causing heavy contamination of this newt pond plus the pond base sediment.

The programme of treatment being applied over a several month period where microbes will be introduced to the pond to naturally clean up the pond water and sediment at base of pond, negating very expensive emptying of the pond contents and large amounts of sediment, plus the damage tankers would cause to the parkland and the pond with its habitat area.

This programme of treatment is supported by a number of stakeholders including the National Trust itself.
