Today’s Manx Independent reports that legal action may be taken due to claims of high-levels of E. coli going into Douglas Bay on the Isle of Man, following the introduction of a whey disposal pipeline by Isle of Man Creameries.
Tests showed the E. coli level to be 100 times the EC bathing waters directive mandatory limit in the Bay.
Isle of Man Creameries chief executive Findlay MacLeod is refuting the claims, saying that their whey pipeline is not the cause of the increased levels of E. coli.
