Reservoirs Act (Northern Ireland) 2015

Section 12 – Structures or areas which become controlled reservoirs after the relevant date.

This section requires new controlled reservoirs to be registered within 28 days of the first issue of a preliminary certificate. Preliminary certificates are issued under section 44 of the Act when the construction engineer supervising the construction of the reservoir considers that the reservoir may safely be filled (either wholly or partly) with water. Subsection (2) again enables the Department by notice to extend the period of 28 days to such time as it considers appropriate.
