Water pollution enforcement actions in Northern Ireland

In relation to your correspondence of 7 April 2022, I would make the following reply in response to your question:

‘Are all water pollution enforcement actions published, or do they need to be requested via FOI/AIE? for example


The Press Releases that Water Management Unit prepare are published on the DAERA website and made available on Twitter from the date of the decision made by Court.

Press Releases are available on the website for 3 months, after which they are removed for legal reasons.

AIE submitted for enforcement actions for 2020-2022 to date (28/4/22)

Requested the specific provision of legislation under which enforcement data is unpublished on a 3 monthly schedule
