Phone the UK Environment Agency by calling their switchboard contact number 03708 506 506 to confirm items of protection legislation, to report pollution and to notify them of severe flooding.

The Environment Agency is the non-ministerial department of the UK government which is responsible for the protection of the environment in the country, guarding it against the effects of flooding and pollution. You may phone their general enquiries contact number 03708 506 506 to voice your concern at any recent changes in legislation that you believe will put either your health or your property at risk. Similarly you can call this helpline to check what conservation actions they are performing in your area, where you can also get information on local nature reserves and parks. An additional reason why you would call this helpline is if you would like to submit a freedom of information (FOI) request for details on their management and actions taken in your local area. Moreover if you would like to make a complaint about the lack of protection work by the Environment Agency in your local neighbourhood then you should call this number to register your dissatisfaction.

The Environment Agency switchboard contact number 03708 506 506 is open 8am-6pm on weekdays (Monday-Friday) and is charged at the same rate as calls to numbers which start with an 01 or 02 area code prefix. Therefore calling them on this helpline will cost you a variable per-minute fee as well as a set cost for call connection unless you have free inclusive minutes as part of your landline or mobile tariff, in this case you will be able to phone the Environment Agency for free as these can be used to make calls to 03 numbers.
