Author: S.B. Newport
Document Type: Monograph
The Control of Pollution (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) Regulations 1991 came into force on 1 September 1991. The regulations require persons with custody or control of a crop being made into silage, livestock slurry or certain fuel oil to carry out works and take precautions and other steps for preventing pollution of waters which are controlled waters for the purposes of Part Three of the Water Act 1989. The regulations provide exemptions from their requirements and for the loss of those exemptions in certain circumstances. They also confer a right for appeal to the Secretary of State and provide that contravention of certain regulations is a criminal offence. The regulations are no longer new to the field staff of the National Rivers Authority. The aim of following notes and the contents supplied in this document will help field staff to draw a common approach to the use of the regulations across the South West Region.
