Environment Agency: Please check your heating oil tank campaign 2013

The Environment Agency is running a new campaign on heating oil tank pollution incidents as there has been a number of spills recently especially from smaller domestic tanks.

The campaign seeks to raise the awareness to parishioners/residents about this matter before the winter sets in as failures of heating oil tanks and associated pipe work happen most often during the cold snap. The consequences to groundwater and rivers for that matter can be devastating. Groundwater is at risk from these failures and the poster attached explains our campaign for the winter 2013 period which we hope you can share.
