The Environment Agency - An Overview

"We work to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development."


Within England the Environment Agency is responsible for:

  • regulating major industry and waste
  • treatment of contaminated land
  • water quality and resources
  • fisheries
  • inland river, estuary and harbour navigations
  • conservation and ecology

It is also responsible for managing the risk of flooding from main rivers, reservoirs, estuaries and the sea.

Lead local flood authorities (LLFAs) are responsible for managing the risk of flooding from surface water, groundwater and ordinary watercourses and lead on community recovery.


Its priorities are to:

  • work with businesses and other organisations to manage the use of resources
  • increase the resilience of people, property and businesses to the risks of flooding and coastal erosion
  • protect and improving water, land and biodiversity
  • improve the way we work as a regulator to protect people and the environment and support sustainable growth
