Will water pollution still be investigated?

Yes. All reports of water pollution should be reported in the usual way by ringing the 24hr hotline 0800 807060 or by emailing Emergency-Pollution@daera-ni.gov.uk if non urgent.

Duty officers will make an assessment of the pollution severity based upon the details provided.  To help with this assessment anyone who wishes to report pollution is asked to forward any supporting photographs / videos to the above email address after calling. Depending on the severity assigned some incidents may not be responded to immediately to avoid unnecessary travel. These incidents will be logged and followed up at a later date.  Any incident assigned a medium or high severity will be investigated as per normal procedures with additional measures put in place to ensure social distancing requirements are kept.
