Amend Private Water Supply Regulations 2009

Comment 1st July 2010

These Regulations were introduced to give force to EU Directive 98/83/EC which altered the regime for testing of private water supplies. However, the original Directive includes a provision to exempt any supply of less than 10 cubic metres, (2,200 gallons), per day. The last Governement chose to disregard the exemption and has therefore imposed an unwelcome and unnecessary burden of a small number of households in rural areas who already pay for abstraction, filtration and purification.

Why does this matter?

The European Commission allowed the exemption which is being applied in other European countries and in Scotland. People in England deserve a level playing field and not to be subjected to additional costs for no benefit.
