Private Water Supplies
A private water supply is any water supply that is not provided by a water company, for example South East Water. The source of the supply could be a well, spring, stream, river, lake, borehole, or pond and can serve more than one property.
Private Distribution System
A private distribution system occurs when mains water is supplied to a site or property which is then distributed to other buildings not owned by that company, organisation or person. The occupants/residents would then pay the landlord directly for the water instead of the water company, for example South East Water.
