In March 2015 we attended the Help with Private Water Supplies seminar at the Thirsk Rural Business Centre. The free event was put on to offer advice to people who get their water supply from a spring, stream, well or a borehole which is very common in and around the Yorkshire Dales.

Business owners, a domestic users, landlords, landowners, environmental health officers, Yorkshire Water staff and the DWI were all in attendance and there was plenty of guidance on offer about all things water.

As well as speaking to attendees one on one Dales Water Directors Jonny and Nick were asked to give a presentation on the problems with borehole water supplies and their construction which has been embedded below:

Just wanted to say thank you to you and your colleagues for your presentations yesterday, especially for stepping in at the very last minute to speak about ultra-violet disinfection after the scheduled presenter pulled out. It was very much appreciated – and as UV is the most common treatment on PWS’s very important to have someone discuss them! I hope you all enjoyed the day. Many thanks, Eva Tallentire, Environmental Health Technical Officer, Ryedale District Council

Thanks to Ryedale Council for inviting us along and we look forward to more prviate water supply focused events in the future. If you have any questions about the presentation or its content feel free to contact us.
