Private water supply update

The Water Intended for Human Consumption (Private Supplies) (Scotland) Regulations 2017, which came into effect on 27 October 2017, will now include any domestic rented property as a commercial activity and will therefore mean such properties are no longer exempt from the regulations. 
 
Each supply for domestic rented properties will now be subject to a 5-year Risk Assessment (the first of which should be complete by 1 January 2022) and annual monitoring as prescribed in the regulations.
 
Members who will be affected by these changes are urged to make use of the £800 per property grant that is available. More information on that can be found here. A full briefing is available on the SLE website here. Should you have any questions, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
