Risks from private water supplies
Your health could be at risk if you draw your water untreated from a private water supply. Water from wells, springs, rivers, ponds, bore holes and lakes may contain micro-organisms and chemicals that can cause short term illness like sickness and diarrhoea. Some impurities, if consumed over time, can lead to more serious health threats like poisoning, kidney failure and even some forms of cancer.
Your Health is Important – ask for a Water Report
If you draw water from a private supply, it is advisable to contact your local Environmental Health Service to check that your water is safe for human consumption. They can provide a water report to identify any impurities that may need treating.
