(a)which are made by a licensed water supplier; and

(b)which a water undertaker is required to permit under section 66B or 66C above in accordance with agreements under section 66D above,

constitute a collective strategic supply of water.

(2)The Authority shall designate the introductions as a collective strategic supply.

(3)Subsection (4) below applies if—

(a)a water undertaker requests the Authority to make a determination that two or more introductions of water constitute a collective strategic supply for the purposes of subsection (1) above, or

(b)the Authority otherwise proposes to make a determination that two or more introductions of water constitute a collective strategic supply for the purposes of that subsection.

(4)The Authority shall give notice of the request or proposed determination to—

(a)the Secretary of State;

(b)the Assembly;

(c)the Environment Agency;

(d)the other party or parties, or the parties, to the agreements under section 66D above; and

(e)such other persons (if any) as the Authority thinks it appropriate to notify.

(5)Any such notice shall specify the time (not being less than twenty-eight days from the date on which the notice was given) within which representations or objections with respect to the request or proposed determination may be made.

(6)The Authority shall consider any representations or objections which are duly made and not withdrawn.

(7)If the Authority determines that introductions designated under this section as a collective strategic supply no longer constitute such a supply, it shall cancel their designation.

(9)Subsection (5) above applies to a notice under subsection (8) above as it applies to a notice under subsection (4) above (and subsection (6) above applies accordingly).

(10)For the purposes of this section, introductions of water are a collective strategic supply if, without those introductions being made, there is a substantial risk that the water undertaker would be unable to maintain supplies to its own customers as well as supplying the customers of the licensed water supplier in question with water for domestic purposes.]
