Title: Water pollution incidents in England and Wales - 1992 : report of the National Rivers Authority
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
Summary statistics are provided on substantiated incidents that occurred in 1992 and for the first time these have been presented by both source of pollution and type of pollutant. The sources of pollution categorised include sewage and water related operations, industry, agriculture and other, whilst the broad types of incidents have been defined as oil, sewage, chemical, farm and other. From the available information, indications of particularly important sources and types of pollution are noted. These will enable pollution control officers to target both these sources and types of pollution to minimise further incidents of this nature. Information on prosecutions taken by the NRA in respect of pollution incidents is given as well as details of some of the more notable prosecutions. In addition, sections describing the prevention of pollution and the costs recovered by the NRA for remedial work resulting from pollution incidents are included for the first time.
