Rebecca Vanstone, prosecuting on behalf of the Environment Agency at Norwich Crown Court, said there would have to be a further hearing to decide the final basis of his plea,
Jason Stevens appeared for Scott, who said his plea was offered on a basis that the illegal operation was between January and August.
