Map Features

This water pollution risk map is designed to assist you in identifying the water receptors in close proximity to home/business/activity.

Registered and licenced boreholes, wells and springs are shown. In addition, the main streams and significant ponds are illustrated as far as possible but some ditches, seasonal streams, small tributaries and other ponds may not be shown.

See below for an explanation of enabled features.
Manure Risk map
The traffic light system is as follows:
Low Green : Low risk areas that can be used for spreading at most times of the year (excluding the closed period).
Medium Orange : Medium risk areas that can be used with caution or special care or that may have conditions of use attached.
High Red : High risk areas that must never be used for spreading.

Anyone spreading organic waste should also carry out a risk assessment prior to spreading to take into account current and predicted field and weather conditions
Pesticide Risk map
Refer to the guidance notes issued by the Jersey Farmers Union for the agreed products to be used in the Red, Amber and Green areas each year by relevant crop type.

Where fields are crossed by the catchment boundary line between high risk and medium risk, or medium risk and low risk It is recommended that the field is treated in its entirety as if it all falls in the higher of the two risk areas
Low Green : Areas outside of those used or Jersey Water to abstract from the public supply.
Medium Orange : Other catchments used by Jersey Water to abstract for the public supply.
High Red : Val de la Mare West, Val de la Mare East, Queens Valley, Queens Valley side-stream.

Please remember that even in ‘Green’ areas there are households on private water supplies (wells and boreholes) and wildlife that depend on good water quality free from contaminants such as pesticides and excess nutrients. Good practice should be followed at all times in all catchment areas.
Boreholes and wells
Registered Licenced
Well Low Low
Borehole Low Low
Spring Low Low
The red circles on the map show a 50 metre ‘no spreading’ zone around any registered or licenced spring, well or borehole.

Livestock manures and other organic wastes should not be applied at any time within 50 metres of a spring, well or borehole, or within 10 metres of a ditch or a watercourse.
SSI’s and proposed SSI’s
Low Natural sites of special interest (SSI's) are places that are considered to be of ‘public importance’ by reason of their ‘special zoological, ecological, botanical or geological interest’, or a combination of these and other special qualities.
