Pollution Control - Water

The pollution of water courses, including becks and streams, is dealt with by the Environment Agency. In the event of a water pollution incident that may pose a risk to public health, we can assist the Environment Agency with the investigation if required. We can also assist by:

  • referring incidents to them
  • ensuring emissions from regulated industry are within statutory guidelines, and
  • preventing pollution of water courses by carrying out our duties in relation to contaminated land control.

You can contact the environment agency directly. Details of how to contact the Environment Agency are:
