OFFENCES AGAINST THB ACT. Offences against the Act are divided into four classes, according as they consist of the pollution or obstruction of streams:— (1.) By the solid refuse of any manufactory, manu- facturing process, or quarry, or any rubbish or cinders, or any other waste, or any putrid solid matter; (2.) By solid or liquid sewage matter; (3.) By any poisonous, noxious, or polluting liquid from any factory or manufacturing process; or (4. By the solid mattor,from any mine, in such quanti- ties as to prejudicially interfere with the due flow of the stream, or by any poisonous, noxious, or polluting solid or liquid matter from any mine, other than water in the same condition as drained or raised from the mine. The Board are desirous of specially drawing the attention of the Sanitary Authority to the provisions in relation to sewage pollutions, inasmuch as any infringe- ment of them will render the Authority liable to hostile proceedings under the Act, on the part either of other Sanitary Authorities, or of any person or body of persons aggrieved by the commission of the offence. As regards pollutions from factories or manufacturing processes, a distinction is drawn similar to that already referred to with respect to sewage pollutions, between the cases where the liquid finds its way into the stream along a channel used, constructed, or in process of con- struction at the date of the passing of the Act, or any new channel constructed in substitution thereof, and having its outfall at the same spot, and those in which it is conveyed into the stream along a channel not falling under either of the above descriptions. In the former oases an offence against the Act will not be deemed to have been committed, if it can be shown to the satisfaction of the Court having cognizance of the case that the person complained of is using the best practicable and reasonably available means to render the liquid harmless. With respect to pollutions from mines, an offence will not be deemed to have been committed if it can be shown to the satisfaction :of the Court that the person.com- plained of is using the best practicable and reasonably available means to,render the polluting matter harm- less and it must be observed that it is immaterial in this case whether the channel by which the discharge is effected was or was not constructed or in process of construction before the passing of the Act.
