Contaminated land

What happens if I inadvertently cause contamination?

In the unlikely event that your actions inadvertently cause contamination, it is important that you take all actions necessary to minimise any potential risks which may arise.

If there is an imminent risk to public safety, it is the Emergency Services that may assist in the first instance. However, this level of risk is unlikely to arise within a domestic setting and therefore you are advised to contact us on 0300 300 8302 or the Environment Agency for advice.
