Environmental Pollution Incident data filtered for Categories 1 and 2. Details of all pollution incidents reported to the Environment Agency are held on the National Incident Reporting System. This dataset only includes substantiated and closed environmental protection incidents, where the environment impact level is either category 1 (major) or category 2 (significant) to at least 1 media (i.e. water, land or air). INFORMATION WARNING: Where these data indicate an incident occurred on a particular site or property no inference should be drawn that the site or property owner necessarily was responsible.
