During the COVID-19 Lockdown we have changed our response to pollution incidents, in line with government guidelines, to reduce the likelihood of spreading the virus and of our staff becoming infected.
We still have a 24/7 environmental hotline 0800 496 734 which you can report any incidents to. Our officers are triaging all incidents which come in. We will only physically respond to the most significant incidents where there are immediate and serious adverse environmental effects (in particular if there is risk to human health).
All other incidents will be responded to in other ways. If you leave your name and number when contacting us we will get back to you as soon as practical.
