Private water supply analysis
- Category: Environmental health
- Last Updated: 07 June 2016
The drinking water to your property may be directly supplied either from:
- Mains Water Supply (e.g. Yorkshire Water) or
- Private Water Supply (e.g. borehole, spring etc).
Alternatively, you may be supplied with a mains water supply indirectly, (e.g. via a Private Distribution Network), which along with private water supplies are regulated under the Private Water Supplies Regulations 2009.
If you are the owner of a Private Distribution Network, you will be responsible for the pipework and distribution system serving buildings/structures occupied by third parties (as opposed to Yorkshire Water being responsible).
