Nitrate Vulnerable Zones

Nitrate Vulnerable Zones

At EvansEnviron we have experience in installing the systems to control the leaching of nitrates into surrounding areas.

Nitrate Vulnerable Zones are designated areas of land that drain into nitrate polluted waters or waters which could become polluted by nitrates from agriculture. They were introduced by the UK government in response to the European Nitrates Directive that stated all EU countries are required to reduce the nitrate in Drinking Water to a maximum of 50 mg/l.

It also requires Nitrate Vulnerable Zones to be designated and for farmers with land in NVZs to follow mandatory rules to tackle nitrate loss from agriculture.

Please contact us if you require any additional information on Nitrate Vulnerable Zones, quotes,  etc, our team will be happy to help!
