Protecting our coastal waters

Digital solutions that enhance regulatory and voluntary environmental programs are leading the way in protecting coastal and estuarine ecosystems. We developed our Pollution Impact Assessor to help classify and group significant polluting assets so that remedial action can be taken at the earliest opportunity.

There is increasing pressure on water businesses to meet pollution-related performance criteria, and the Pollution Impact Assessor can help provide the evidence necessary to the Environmental Agency (EA). With clearer, more precise reporting of pollution incidents, you can potentially reduce the number of category 3 events—events which lead to penalties within performance commitments. 

Using the assessor tool, businesses enter an incident’s details, translating the specific event into a classification based on a large database of coastal models, parameters, and conditions. The tool determines the approximate environmental impact with regards to harmful bacteria.  

The Pollution Impact Assessor is an effective solution to understand both historic and future incidents. Water businesses with assets that discharge into estuarine or coastal waters can use this tool to reduce penalties and maintain asset integrity. 

Yorkshire Water

This Pollution Impact Assessor tool was developed for Yorkshire Water and is the first of its kind. This project saved Yorkshire Water approximately £800k of performance penalties in 2019 alone.
