Insurance Definition of Pollution 1 : The contamination of an environment by substances regarded as pollutants. Liability from pollution is normally excluded to some degree by general, auto, and umbrella liability policies. In recent years, insurers have attempted to introduce strict exclusionary language into these policies, making it necessary for insureds to seek coverage under separate “environmental impairment liability” policies. Insurance Definition of Pollutant 1 : An irritant or contaminant, whether in solid, liquid, or gaseous form, including smoke, vapor, soot, fumes, acids, alkalis, chemicals, and waste (when they can be regarded as an irritant or contaminant). 1 Glossary of Insurance and Risk Management Terms, 10 th Addition.
