The Private Water Supplies (England) Regulations 2008

The regulations would require Local Authorities to complete risk assessments of all small and large suppliers within 5 years of the regulations coming into
force.  Risk assessments will involve surveying the private water supply to minimise the contamination of source water.  The proposed regulations recommend that  councils may also charge to carry out a risk assessment, sampling and audit.  It is the CLA's view that there is a real danger that more powers may be given to Local Authorities than is necessary or than what is required under the Directive.  The CLA think that existing control measures are sufficient.
