Private Water Supplies - Rented Properties
I am a tenant in a rented property
If you are a tenant in a rented property which has a private water supply you must check with your landlord or with Eden District Council that the supply is registered with us. We will need to sample the supply every year and carry out a risk assessment every five years. We charge a fee for this work which is typically paid by the landlord.
You, your family and visitors to the property have a right to expect clean, safe drinking water.
