FOI Request Hydrological Supply Search

Request 101001452075

We are carrying out a hydrology assessment as we are looking at the possibility of extending Paul’s Hill Wind Farm.  As part of this work we are assessing impact on nearby Private Water Supplies (PWS).  I have attached a map showing a 2 km search area (Centre point NGR 311571 841290 ) for PWS and also the GIS shape file.  Would it be possible to have a list of properties within this search area which have a PWS and if available the type of supply?.

Please see attached list of private water supplies in your search area Paul's Hill.  SOURCES    USERS


If you require further information on individual sources please contact Ewan McNeil or Madalina Vancea direct from our Private Water Supplies Team email or

Category A supplies, are supplies which are commercial or have 50 or more users. Category B are non-commercial with less than 50.

NOTE:- The location data we hold for the private water supplies is not 100% accurate (easting's and northing's can be out but we are currently working on improving these through GPS, unfortunately I cannot provide a figure on the accuracy, some maybe just in a general area of the property it serves). To ensure I have captured all sources within the search area you provided I have buffered your site by an additional 500m. I have included all properties which are served by the sources captured in the buffer.

The spreadsheet may contain multiple records for the same source reference, this may be where either multiple source abstractions points are located or there are other private water supply infrastructure located eg storage tanks.. The list does not include historic private water supplies. The data is provided based on the best information available to the council at the time of writing.

Further private water supply information can be obtained from the link below, along with access to our register of sources.

Disclaimer. Moray Council will not accept any liability for any costs incurred by the recipient or by any third parties arising from or as a result of any inaccuracies in the information provided by us in relation to the location of a particular Private Water Supply. Recipients are asked to note that the information provided  will  be taken from information provided by Private Water Supply Users, the accuracy or otherwise of which may not have been verified by the Council.
