A pollution incident is being investigated on the River Par, the Environment Agency has confirmed.
A member of the public reported seeing a number of dead fish in the river.
The Par River runs through Luxulyan and is often called the Luxulyan River – it drains the area north of St Blazey.
- We here at the Par carnival team are in constant contact with the river agency for the latest on the incident. As of Tuesday 16th July we are still planning on running the duck race. If this changes we will update this post as we are informed.
We ask that anyone attending the event do not enter the water and keep off the river /canal banks, as since the incident the weather has remained hot and the water level is low, which might have left small amounts of the pollution in the river area.
