Environment Agency Notice

ABSTRACTION OF WATER - NEW LEGISLATION

The Environment Agency have notified that the Law is changing for people who abstract water. Previously exempt water users may now have to apply for a licence.

Changes to abstraction licensing means that if you abstract more than 20 metres3 per day, you now need a licence. If you are a collection of houses on one borehole supply, or a farm or business that takes water from watercourses (rivers, streams, springs) or pumps from the ground, you need a licence.

The new rules will better protect the environment by helping to balance the needs of water users, whilst also protecting water supplies and the plants and animals that rely on them.

To see an Environment Agency newsletter providing the latest update on new rules on water use and abstraction licensing, please click on the ‘more details’ link below. As mentioned in the newsletter the Environment Agency now have an online information page about this, which they will keep updated on a regular basis. The link to this page is https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/environment-and-business/removing-previously-exempt-abstraction-activities/.

To help promote this information the Environment Agency have also published a poster, which you can find here.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of this further, the Environment Agency ask you to please call 03708 506 506 and ask for the ‘New Authorisations hotline’, or email enquiries@environment-agency.gov.uk stating ‘New Authorisations’ in the email subject to find out more.
