Private Water emergency supplies
Residents and businesses on private water supplies are being urged to take precautions during the current prolonged dry weather.
The responsibility for private water supplies rests with the owners of the properties fed by the supply and residents and businesses on private water supplies need to be prepared for the possibility that their supplies may dry-up.
There are a number of outlets that can provide emergency water supplies in these circumstances.
All suppliers should be able to provide evidence that they comply with BS 8551:2015 Provision and Management of Temporary Water Supplies and Distribution Networks Code of Practice.
The standard provides a framework for best practice in the management of temporary wholesome water supplies and maintenance of the distribution networks and container vessels. It demonstrates all the procedural steps that should be carried out when supplying water as well as the due diligence required in relation to water, health and safety laws.
