And how many reports had water samples taken at the site please.

Dear DAERA WMU FOI,

I first asked for this on September 7 last year:

How many REPORTS of slurry pollution have you received in the area of Mid Ulster District Council in the last five years?
How many did NIEA investigate?
How many alleged offences were taken to prosecution?
Can you provide the figures for each year separately please?

You provided figures only on CONFIRMED cases of slurry, and how many of these were prosecuted.

I would like to know how many REPORTS of suspected slurry pollution were received in the Mid Ulster District Council area, a number which I suspect will be greater.

So I replied:
Thank you for this, could you also tell me how many REPORTS (not CONFIRMED as you have provided) of pollution incidents you received.
And how many water samples were taken on site and later tested by NIEA in relation to these reports.

I also asked for the figures for 2016 on all of these headings please?

Many thanks,
Shauna
