Water

2. Private water supplies

There are over 50 commercial and domestic premises in the borough that draw their water from private supplies. The Local Authority has a legal responsibility to sample the water from these premises.

If you are someone who has a private water supply serving your home, please visit the Drinking Water Inspectorate website. This will give you information about the legislation and any responsibilities the council has. It will give you information about the responsibilities you may have as the owner, operator or user of the supply.
