EIR Req: Private Water Supply Data

Request 101003368468

I would like to request private water supply data for an area 5 km in radius of National Grid Ref: NJ426640. Nearest Address: Inchgower Distillery, A98, Buckpool, Buckie, Moray, Scotland, AB56 5AB

Ideally this will include:

•  Location details – co-ordinates or similar
•  Source of abstraction (e.g., borehole etc.)
•  Any other details (e.g., volumes, purpose, source construction etc.)

The information requested can be found below: 

Please see the attached list of private water supplies in your search area. If you require further information on individual sources please contact our Private Water Supplies Team via email EHadmin@moray.gov.uk .

Reg 2 are supplies that are commercial (including private lets), or they supply more than 50 persons. Category B are non-commercial with less than 50 persons.

NOTE: The location data we hold for the private water supplies is not 100% accurate; eastings and northings can be out, but we are currently working on improving these using GPS surveys. Unfortunately, I cannot provide a figure on the accuracy and some sources may just be located in the general area of the property served. Sources within an additional ‘Plus1km’ buffer are included in the list to cover this eventuality.

The spreadsheet may contain multiple records for the same source reference, this may be where either multiple source abstractions points are located or there are other private water supply infrastructure located e.g. storage tanks. The location Type indicates the type: A or A1 etc = Source, B or B1 etc = supply infrastructure, U or U1 etc = unused supply infrastructure. Sites marked with "Y" confirmed are for sites where we have visited site and obtained more accurate locations. The list does not include historic private water supplies. The data is provided based on the best information available to the council at the time of writing.

Further private water supply information can be obtained from the link below, along with access to our register of sources.


Disclaimer. Moray Council will not accept any liability for any costs incurred by the recipient or by any third parties arising from or as a result of any inaccuracies in the information provided by us in relation to the location of a particular Private Water Supply. Recipients are asked to note that the information provided  will  be taken from information provided by Private Water Supply Users, the accuracy or otherwise of which may not have been verified by the Council.
