The purification plant has been in place for over 18 months. This system has made
a significant improvement to both the clarity of the water and it’s safeness. The

Craven District Council Private Water Supplies Event 2014
Many of you will have received a letter inviting you to this event held at the Council
Offices in Skipton. The purpose of this event it to raise awareness of the changes
to legislation in regard to private water supplies. This event is primarily for
people who manage their own private water supply either via a bore hole or a spring.
Long Preston Water Trust has the responsibility to meet these regulations on your
behalf as a consumer of Long Preston Water Trust. The Trust has been through a risk
assessment and continues to address the areas that need improvement. Water samples
are taken from randomly selected homes throughout the village by Craven District
Council, who then test these samples and provide the Trust with a report.
The Trust has spoken to Craven District Council and can confirm that this new legislation
will not effect properties regardless of whether they are commercial or tenanted,
that are supplied by Long Preston Water Trust.
