At the EUGAL construction site near Stolpe an der Peene, Germany, the construction site is currently being prepared for the move-in of the second EUGAL line. In the course of this work, a retention basin was damaged on Monday 17 February 2020. Ground rock from the drilling process and bentonite suspension are stored in this. The Stralsund mining authority as the competent authority was informed immediately.

The bentonite used on the construction site is a pure natural product that is used in tunnel construction. As a result of the damage, a significant amount of the material leaked and ran onto the work strip.

Due to the sloping terrain, the harmless material has entered the forest. The peene is not affected. The cleaning work was started immediately and is expected to be completed later this week. The construction site was also secured with a catch dam, so that no further material can escape.
