Who are Environmental Protection and what do we do?

Updated 28 June 2016 3:42pm

Our Environmental Protection Team manages pollution through site inspections, investigating environmental incidents and managing a 24-hour environment hotline.

Managing pollution in our harbour

An incident like a marine oil spill into one of our harbours or waterways could mean a disaster for our environment. Practice exercises ensure our teams are up to date with managing environmental and pollution incidents. These are all key to managing risks to our life style, economy and environment if a real marine oil spill happens.

 

 

Report an environmental incident

To report an environmental incident, phone the environment hotline on 0800 496 734. Your details will remain confidential and will not be released to other parties.
