Rural diffuse pollution is the largest pollution pressure affecting water quality in Scotland. Sources include run-off from ring feeders and cattle watering points, slurry storage/spreading activities and the loss of soil following cultivation.

SEPA officers will be visiting rural land managers in the Annandale catchment over the next few months to discuss ways in which they can reduce the risk of diffuse pollution and provide advice on legislation, including the Diffuse Pollution General Binding Rules (GBRs).

Come along to find out more about what to expect from these visits and get practical advice on how to keep on the right side of the regulations, reduce your diffuse pollution risk and benefit your farm business.

An elected speaker from SEPA will provide information about farm visits they have been conducting elsewhere in Scotland and you will learnFarming & Water Scotland Logo what to expect from such a visit.

Farming & Water Scotland will also be present to answer any of your questions.
