Pollution control

Water quality

As a local authority the council - alongside other governmental and independent bodies - is obliged to ensure drinking water is clean and safe.

This is achieved through regular checks of water purity and monitoring private water supplies outside the main supplier Thames Valley Water.

Air quality

Pollution in the air is caused by car emissions and wrongful burning in places such as fireplaces and because of bonfires.

Industrial regulations

Businesses may cause air and water pollution or introduce contaminates to land. These businesses are inspected by The Environmental Agency who require a business to have a permit.
