Private distribution systems - Information

Where a water company supplies water to a boundary of a premises and the person responsible for the premises supplies it onwards to other buildings or properties on the site which have different occupiers, this becomes a private water supply under the Private Water Supplies Regulations 2009.

Types of premises where this might occur would include

  • Campsites where water is distributed to individual units or stand pipes
  • Business parks
  • Industrial estates
  • A college campus

Types of premises that are not included are

  • Blocks of residential flats/ apartments whether owner occupied or tenanted;
  • Houses that have multiple occupancy;
  • A row of two or more houses (usually a terrace) supplied by a water undertaker from a single common supply pipe.

This further distribution of water is known as a Private Distribution System and the regulations introduce responsibilities for the person in charge of the distribution.
