Sampling of private water supplies and spring water

Sampling of private water supplies from springs and wells is carried out by the Environment Team on a regular basis, the actual frequency depending on the category of the supply. This can be as frequent as once a month to as infrequent as once every five years.

In addition to the work carried out above, the Environment Team also takes monthly samples from various public water spouts in Malvern town. The results (see below) are colour-coded to indicate whether or not they comply with the requirements of the Private Water Supply Regulations 1991.

Industrial Pollution - Integrated Pollution Control.

Malvern Hills District Council controls the emissions to air of a number of industrial processes under the terms of The Environmental Permitting Regulations 2007. The Council is able to apply a set of conditions based on the use of "best available technique" which balances the cost to the operator against the benefit to the environment. This system is known as Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) and aims to prevent emissions, pollution and waste production and when this is not practical, reduce them to acceptable levels.
