Private water supply Improvement Grants
With the cold weather this year highlighting possible weaknesses in private water supplies, there may be people who will be considering improving their systems this year.
Remember to look at the Argyll and Bute Council website to see if you can qualify for help towards the costs.
Improvement Grants for Private Water Supplies
Grants of up to Â£800 are available from the Council to help you improve your private water supply. This may include the installation of treatment equipment, or for the provision of a new private water supply or domestic distribution system (within the meaning of the 2006 Regulations).
The Grant Scheme is non-means tested and you may be eligible for financial assistance if:
Your home or business is in the Argyll and Bute area and served by a private water supply;
The private water supply is the main or sole source of water for human consumption purposes to these premises; and
Your private water supply is in need of improvement to bring it up to modern standards.
