Private Water Supplies

The Public Health Act 1997 regulates the supply and use of private water and requires the users and suppliers of water obtained from a private water source are registered under the Act.

This means that private water carriers must register their operations with Council. For Food Premises outside of the Taswater system a registration as a Food Premises exempts the business from the requirement to be a registered private water supplier.

The Drinking Water Quality Guidelines provide advice on the management of water supplies and requirements for Commercial Water Carriers.
