The Inspectorate has published a number of Case Studies to illustrate the range and scope of the situations that can arise in the risk management of private supplies:
- Regulation 10 supplies (including SDD)
- Regulation 9 supplies
- Risk Assessments
- Serving Notices
- Classification of new PWS supplies
A full list of Case Studies can be obtained in the Private Water Supplies Case Study Index
Case Studies: Regulation 8 Supplies
A Regulation 8 supply is one where the water originates from a public mains supply and is then further distributed by a person other than the water undertaker or licensed water supplier. A number of case studies are available.
Whilst a relevant person has a legal obligation to comply with the requirements set out in any notice served on them, the legislation does however make provision for a relevant person(s) to appeal. An appeal to a Regulation 18 Notice is heard in front of a magistrate and a Section 80 appeal is referred to The Secretary of State (in reality the Chief Inspector of The Inspectorate) for him to confirm (or not), with or without modification.
A number of case studies are available to assist local authorities in ensuring Notices served are complied with.
