Water Management Regulations

Under the Water Management Act 1999, there are three separate sets of regulations: the Water Management Regulations 2009, the Water Management (Safety of Dams) Regulations 2003 and the Water Management (Electoral and Polling) Regulations 2009.
  • The Water Management Regulations 2009 set limits on the taking of water for specific uses and set fees for water licences. They also cover the requirements for well drillers licences, and set fines for contravention of, or failure to comply with, any regulations.
  • The Water Management (Safety of Dams) Regulations 2015 set the level of competency required for construction teams to be authorised to work on dams of different hazard categories and dimensions.
  • The Water Management (Electoral and Polling) Regulations 2009 set the requirements for elections and polling conducted by Trusts who administer a Water District under the Water Management Act 1999.
