Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
Never allow contaminated drainage from your feed storage or delivery areas to enter surface water drains, land drains or watercourses. If you do, you may be committing a pollution offence.
If you are delivering feed through a pipeline, take special care that the pipeline does not leak. Locate the pipe so that if it does leak you minimise the risk of the feed entering a drain. Try to run pipelines above ground as far as possible, but position them so that you minimise the risk of accidental damage.
