Private water supplies

Allerdale has many commercial and domestic premises that draw their water from private supplies. As a Council we have a legal responsibility to sample the water from these premises.

We also act as the regulators for private water supplies and have a number of statutory duties under the Private Water Supplies Regulations. 

These Regulations place a duty on us to conduct a risk assessment of each private water supply within their area and to undertake monitoring in order to determine compliance with drinking water standards. 

We also have powers under the Regulations to require that a supply is improved by the relevant person(s) who control the supply.

More information on private water supplies

Further information about the responsibilities of the owner/operator/user of the supply can be found on the Defra website .

Use our general enquiry form to arrange and inspection, register your private water supply to us, and arrange dairy hygiene monitoring. Mark your enquiry for the Environmental Protection team and provide contact details so we can ring you back (and when is the best time for you).
