It is an offence to cause or knowingly permit a water pollution discharge activity. The offences cover pollution of all watercourses, including streams, rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal waters and the territorial sea out to 3 nautical miles. Groundwater is included as a watercourse. For England and Wales, the principal water pollution offences are contained in the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010: regulations 38(1) and 12(1). Read More
Personally I would like to thank each and every one of you for your fantastic support that you have shown the NADC over the past few weeks! You guys are simply amazing! I would like to say a big thank you to all NADC members for pulling together in a time of need. As you will know PPE has been hard to get hold for some contractors, so we called out to all NADC members for help. We had a great response from members that wanted to help other NADC members and for this we are truly grateful. Coming together as an industry can only be a positive thing in the current circumstances and the NADC will do whatever it can to help members (and non-member contractors) through this difficult time.
