[2013] EWHC 472 (Admin)

The unintended escape of sewage from a sewerage undertaker's network into surrounding properties amounted to a "deposit" within the Environmental Protection Act 1990 s.33(1)(a). A conviction under the first limb of that provision did not depend on a deliberate act because the provision imposed strict liability.
