Reservoirs Act (Northern Ireland) 2015

Section 5 – Controlled reservoirs: supplementary

Subsection (1) clarifies that anything which is integral to the functioning or operation of a controlled reservoir forms part of it and would be subject to regulation under the Act and gives some specific examples.

Subsection (2) lists particular things that are not controlled reservoirs and therefore not subject to regulation under the Act.

Subsection (3) enables the Department, by regulations, to define with more precision the things that are listed in subsection (2) and to exclude other things from being ‘or being treated as’ controlled reservoirs.
