Private water supplies

Private water supplies, not covered by the private water companies, (such as wells and springs) are sampled by staff from the Environmental Health Service.

If this water is found to be polluted, advice is offered on suitable methods of treating the water to make it safe.

If you have a private water supply and wish to arrange for sample testing, please call 01277 312500.

You can find out more about drinking water quality and testing from the Drinking Water Inspectorate.
