Groundwater contamination is receiving increasing attention in the UK. It will be highlighted this year with the introduction of the Groundwater Regulations (1998), and the expected introduction of part II(a) of the Environmental Protection Act (1990) and works notices under section 161A of the Water Resources Act (1991) this summer. This legislation gives new powers and responsibilities to regulatory bodies to prevent groundwater pollution and to manage contaminated land and groundwater.
