Medway Council needs to update its records about private water supplies within its boundary.
The Private Water Supplies Regulations 2009 have been amended and local authorities are now required to monitor and enforce the safety of private water supplies.
The new regulations are to ensure that water from a private water supply is wholesome, and people who drink from a private water supply are not risking their health.
Private water may come from a variety of sources including wells, springs, boreholes and streams.
If you have a private water supply contact the Trading Standards enforcement team on 01634 331684.
