Founded in 1996, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency’s main role is to protect the environment and human health. We do this by regulating activities that can cause pollution and by monitoring the quality of Scotland’s air, land and water.
SEPA is a non-departmental public body, accountable through Scottish Ministers to the Scottish Parliament.
SEPA's pollution hotline and floodline services (both 24 hour) can be contacted on the numbers below.
