Implementation of General Environment Duty under the Act status update
The consultants have produced draft process flow charts for the reporting of sewer spills and contaminated land under GED, and these were considered at a workshop with the related Working Group that was held on Friday 22 October 2021. A range of valuable feedback was provided by Working Group members, and the consultants are reworking the draft guidance on the basis of this feedback.
The draft process flow charts have also been sent to EPA for their review/comment.
Depending on how long it takes to receive feedback from EPA, the timeline to complete the project may push into early December 2021.
