Notice of Proposal to Make an Enforcement Order – Sandown WTW
Southern Water Services Ltd – Notice Under Section 20 of the Water Industry Act 1991
The Chief Inspector of Drinking Water, on behalf of the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, gives notice as required by section 20 of the Water Industry Act 1991 that –
The Inspectorate proposes to make an enforcement order under section 18 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (‘the Act’) on Southern Water Services Limited, with registered number 02366670, (‘the Company’)
The making of an order is proposed on the basis that the Company is contravening conditions of its appointment in relation to comply with requirements contained in notices served on it under regulation 28(4) of the Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 2016 (‘the Regulations’), pertaining to Sandown Brading and Sandown Shanklin water treatment works (reference SRN-2018-00020 V5), rendering it liable to enforcement actions under regulation 38 of the same Regulations.
The contravention is not considered to be trivial to the extent that exceptions outlined in section 19 of the Act should be applied.
The effect of this order will be to place the Company under a statutory obligation, which requires compliance with the steps and reporting outlined in the attached Schedule of Works.
If the order is made, failure to carry out the steps and reporting set out in the Schedule of Works will be considered a contravention of the requirements of the order.
Representations or objections with respect to the making of the order may be made by 8 September 2023 and should be addressed to Marcus Rink, Chief Inspector of Drinking Water at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any representations or objections which are duly made and not withdrawn by 8 September 2023 shall be considered by the Inspectorate for the purposes of determining whether the proposed order should be made.
