Water pollution is the contamination of large areas of water. An environmental disaster such as this occurs when chemicals are directly or indirectly released into the water without correct treatment to remove unsafe substances.
Apart from EU standards, river quality objectives (RQOs) also apply to rivers in England and Wales. They address particular local needs and circumstances. They set out the chemical quality required in English and Welsh rivers before they can be trusted upon for water supply.
The Environment Agency is mainly responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of fresh, marine, surface and underground waters in England and Wales.
The Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) is the appropriate body that controls and monitors the quality of drinking water in England and Wales. The Water Industry Act 1991 entails local authorities to keep themselves up-to-date about the quality and quantity of water supplies provided within their area.

Generally speaking Water Contamination is a situation where hazardous chemicals pollute a source of water. Majority sources of water contamination come from chemical pollution. It could be either from chemical or biological wastage not being disposed of in the correct manner or through oil spills and leakages.
Water companies have enforcement powers under various Regulations to deal with waste and contamination arising from installation and maintenance of water systems. Water companies are required to have adequate water treatment in place. The water should be disinfected before being supplied and to the standards of The Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI)
A claim can be made if you have suffered due to a water injury claim. There is a strict three-year time limit for pursuing compensation, which usually begins from the day of the incident. However, because some symptoms do not always present themselves right away, this limit may begin from the date you knew the injury was caused by an accident or injury was caused by contamination of water.
To make a successful claim, you need to prove that the incident was caused by the negligence of your Water Company or provider. This is where Aequitas Legal comes in.
