Dear Welsh Water,

I would like to request some information on water fluoride levels for a public health research study at the University of Manchester.

For any of your water supply regions that cross into England, please can you supply:

1. Water fluoride concentration sample data (consumer tap samples) for every Water Supply Zone that you supply water to, for every year from 2009-2020?

Please supply this in Mg of fluoride per litre, with the date of the sample, and the Water Supply Zone name and zone code, preferably as an Excel file.

2. GIS Shapefile maps showing the English Water Supply Zone boundaries for every year from 2009-2020.

Many thanks in advance,

Yours faithfully,

Deborah Moore

Our Reference: EIR/567/2020

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Request for information

 

We write further to your request for information of 29^th July 2020, which
we have been considering under
the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

I have set out below your questions alongside our responses:

 

For any of your water supply regions that cross into England.

1. Water fluoride concentration sample data (consumer tap samples) for
every Water Supply Zone that you supply water to, for every year from
2009-2020?

Please supply this in Mg of fluoride per litre, with the date of the
sample, and the Water Supply Zone name and zone code, preferably as an
Excel file.

 

Please find attached a spreadsheet entitled ‚ÄėFluoride Data‚Äô.

 

2. GIS Shapefile maps showing the English Water Supply Zone boundaries for
every year from 2009-2020.

DŇĶr Cymru Welsh Water don‚Äôt hold a shapefile map to disclose.
To explain, since 2017 it has been a requirement of ours to provide the
DWI (Drinking Water Inspectorate) with a copy of our Water Quality/ Supply
Zones for each year.  However, the provision of this data is not supplied
as a ‚Äėshape file‚Äô, but as a pdf map of our whole supply area.

Please find attached the PDF entitled ‚ÄėWater Quality Zone Maps 2017-2019‚Äô.

We hope that this response is clear.  Should you have any questions, you
can contact us at [1][email address]. 

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within 40 working days of the date of receipt of this response
and should be addressed to Company Secretary, Pentwyn Road, Nelson,
Treharris, Mid Glamorgan, CF46 6LY.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

G Andrews
