November 30, 2018

From the 1st of January 2018 it has been a requirement that:

  • abstraction of water for quarry dewatering;
  • abstraction of water for trickle irrigation;
  • and abstraction of more than 20m3/day of water in previous geographically exempt areas

now requires an abstraction licence. As we’re drawing near to the end of 2018, we’re highlighting the importance of acting NOW in order to ensure that you hit the key deadlines.

Envireau Water has been involved in the development and implementation of the New Authorisations process since it was first raised in about 1998. Using this insight, we have produced easy to read handbooks for Quarry Dewatering, Trickle Irrigation and Geographically Exempt Areas, which cover ‘Transition Arrangements’; making and submitting your application; and a useful timetable of key deadlines. All of the guides can be accessed for free in the Envireau Knowledge section of our website.

If you need support with your New Authorisations, 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.
