Section 76 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (c. 56) (“the Act”), as substituted by section 36 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 (c. 29), allows a water undertaker to prohibit one or more specified uses of water supplied by it if it thinks that it is experiencing, or may experience, a shortage of water for distribution. The uses that may be prohibited are set out in section 76(2) of the Act.
This Order defines words and phrases used in section 76(2) of the Act, provides for certain exceptions to the categories of use in that section and provides that certain activities are to be or not to be treated as falling within the categories of use in that section.
A separate impact assessment has not been prepared in respect of this Order because the impact assessment which was prepared for the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 included assumptions which are reflected in this Order.
