Well Grants & Private Wells

Private Water Supply Grants Scheme (Well Grants)

A national grant scheme exists to assist those households dependent on private individual water supply. 

The scheme is designed to provide financial assistance to households who incur capital expenditure in order 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 prior to inspection by the local authority do not qualify for financial assistance under the terms of the grant scheme.

The grant application forms and a detailed information document are available to download below.
