In recent years there has been a rising trend in oil-related water pollution incidents in England. In 1999, there were more than five thousand oil-related water pollution incidents in England, which accounted for around 17% of all water incidents. These incidents were mainly due to leaks from un-bunded tanks; caused by inadequate storage facilities and equipment, vandalism, poor management or human error.

Regulations have been laid in Parliament which have introduced new controls on water pollution from oil stores in England.
