Do I need permission to install a private water supply?

You are entitled to extract up to 20,000 litres (20m³) of water per day without any license. A modest size household uses approximately 1200 litres per day. It is a statutory requirement that we submit our drilling logs to the British Geological Society for their records. If you do require more than 20,000 litres per day you will require an Abstraction Licence from the Environment Agency. Water Seekers will help you in the application process.
