On Friday 20th July 2018 Gatwick Airport called upon the emergency response department of Sweeptech in order to assist with an Incident that they were experiencing. The River Mole which runs along on the grounds of the Airport was suffering with a lack of oxygenated water. The lack of oxygen in the water was causing fish to die and therefore fresh water had to be bought in by Sweeptech’s tankers under Thames Waters permission. It was then pumped into the River by our experienced operations team. This whole operation was overseen by the Environment Agency and was a success which prevented any further fish from dying.
This was another excellent example of the Partnership working we do with Gatwick Airport and the Environment Agency.
