The Environment Agency has produced an annual report on reservoir incidents in the UK since 2007.
Owners and operators of large raised reservoirs in England are now legally required to report incidents and send a post-incident report to the Environment Agency. This is required under the Reservoirs Act 1975 as amended by the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.
Owners and operators of small raised reservoirs in England (those with a capacity of less than 25,000 cubic metres of water above ground level) can continue to report incidents to the Environment Agency on a voluntary basis.
More information about the changes to legislation and how this affects reporting reservoir incidents is in the report.
