Tim Daw made this Freedom of Information request to Wiltshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Wiltshire Council,

In January 2017 you kindly supplied me with the results of the following questions upto that date. Please could you supply me with the updated results to the date of this request.

You will note that the Private Water Supply at the New Visitor Centre is a Regulation 9 supply and under the The Private Water Supplies (England) Regulations 2016 it should have been inspected at least twice since 26th June 2016 and a Risk Assessment produced.

Please note the original risk assessment highlighted problems with potential run off into the borehole and the area around the borehole has been a building site this year.

Please also note the worries of radon containing phosphatic chalk under the Stonehenge WHS highlighted by the geological investigations for the A303 tunnel and so please confirm that the water is also tested for radioactivity

Wiltshire council through its Environmental Protection Team is responsible for making sure water from private water supplies is safe to drink and use

As a consumer of the water please could you supply me with

(a)the risk assessment;

(b)the date, results and location of any sampling and analysis relating to that supply, and the reason for taking the sample;

(c)the results of any investigation undertaken in accordance with Private Water Supply Regulations;

(g)any notices served;

(h)any action agreed to be taken by any person under Private Water Supply Regulations;

with regard to the private water supply to the New Visitor Centre near Stonehenge operated by English Heritage since its opening.

Yours faithfully,

Tim Daw
