A man is said to have cleaned several paintbrushes in front of his house in the rain and thereby polluted a fish pond with 250 char. The paint had probably got into a public watercourse that flowed into the pond with the fish, as the police announced on Monday. The water in the pond was colored white by the pollution on Sunday. The fish are still alive, but can probably no longer be offered for the planned sale. A water sample was taken for examination. According to the police, if the color is impaired, the man expects a report of water pollution.
