From the 1st of January 2018 it has been a requirement that abstraction of water for quarry dewatering requires an abstraction licence.

Envireau Water has been involved in the development and implementation of the New Authorisations process since it was first raised in about 1998 as an active member of the Mineral Products Association Water Group.

Using this insight, we have produced “A Guide to New Authorisations – Quarry Dewatering”, an easy to read handbook which covers ‘Transition Arrangements’; making and submitting your application; and a useful timeline of key deadlines. You can access the guide here, or it is available in the Envireau Knowledge section of our website.

Need support with your licensing process?

Envireau Water is the UK’s leading independent, abstraction licensing and water management specialist. We are also specialists in issues related to the minerals industry, giving us unique expertise in this arena.

Not every application needs our help but if you:

  • Are struggling to define your historic use
  • Have no hydrogeological description of the site
  • Have other unlicensed abstractions
  • Need to apply for New Water
  • Are located close to sensitive environmental sites
  • Have an extensive water monitoring requirement

we suggest that you should contact us for a free, no obligation conversation. It is far more difficult and expensive to sort out licensing problems at the end of the process, than it is if the process is started and presented in the right way at the beginning.
