Title: Pollution incidents in England and Wales 2000
Author: Environment Agency- Water Quality
Document Type: Monograph
This report is the latest in a series produced by the Agency and covers the calendar year 2000. Previous reports have related to water pollution incidents only. The Agency is committed to moving towards a fully integrated pollution incident report in the future, in order to more accurately reflect its work. This report represents the first step in that process and, whilst retaining a focus on water pollution, information is provided on all pollution incidents dealt with by the Agency in England and Wales, irrespective of the receiving medium. Details of court cases relating to the Agency's environmental regulation role heard in 2000 are included. The report also contains information on some of the more serious incidents from previous years, which could not be reported earlier because they had not come to court when the 1999 report was published. The layout of the report and the presentation of the data are based on those used in the earlier reports. For the purpose o f this report, incidents are reported on a river catchment basis. In the case of Environment Agency Wales this differs from the political boundary. Therefore all references to incidents in the Environment Agency Wales in this report are on a catchment basis.
