For unknown reasons, a defect arose at the local biogas plant causing a large quantity of biomass to run out into the Millebach.

The incident took place during the early morning hours on Sunday. The extent of the spill is not known.

A team of firefighters, police officers, and members from the Water Management Administration were called to the scene to limit damages and launch an investigation into the matter.

According to RTL information, and contrary to what was initially reported, it was not the Millebaach which was affected, but the Näerdenerbaach.
