Water Pollution

Water Pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). Water pollution occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.

Water pollution affects plants and organisms living in these bodies of water.

Incidents of water pollution should be reported to the Environment Agency Pollution Hotline 0800 807060.
