Oil and fuel spillages are the most common type of pollution incident in England and Wales with more than 5,000 incidents recorded each year (Source - Environment Agency). Spillages of oil, either onto ground or directly to the water environment, can cause long term damage to water supplies, watercourses, springs and habitats. In the U.K., land contamination is regulated by the Environment Agency and Local Authorities and the presence of pollution can create liabilities when a property is sold or developed. With many spills, it is important to act quickly to contain and control the spillage and ensure that an assessment of the residual contamination is made. Early identification of a problem and the appropriate response can help control the impact of the pollution, minimise the clean up costs, and maintain property value.
