Darmstadt (dpa / lhe) – In Hesse, the summer temperatures for the fish in the Main could soon become a problem. As the Darmstadt regional council announced on Monday, the persistently warm weather means there is a risk that the temperature in the river will rise to a critical 25 degrees. Due to the high water temperature, the Main’s ability to absorb oxygen is significantly reduced, it said.

The municipal and industrial water dischargers were asked to exhaust all possibilities when reaching the critical 25 degrees to keep the pollution of the discharged wastewater as low as possible so that as few nutrients as possible get into the water, explained press spokesman Guido Martin. The aim is to keep the oxygen enrichment in the body of water as high as possible until the weather conditions change.
