Intro Text 


The objective of the grant scheme is to assist households dependent on private individual water supplies who are incurring capital expenditure to:

  • Provide a pipe supply of water for domestic purposes or
  • Remedy serious deficiencies in an existing supply of water for domestic purposes

The scheme does not apply to houses to which a public or group scheme water supply has already been provided or can reasonably be provided. 

Any works that have been carried out before a prior inspection by the local authority do not qualify under this scheme.
