The present committee consists of:Simon Rutherford (Chair), John Ridley (Secretary), Sheila Berryman (Treasurer), Tom Barker, Steve Lewis, Les Meakin, Terry O'Donnell and John Shirley.

Aylburton Water is a charitable association, which depends wholly on the voluntary effort and contributions of its members. Membership is only be open to individuals over eighteen from each household or to organisations connected to the association's water supply. All of the members will be equally responsible for the water availability and quality from the supply.

The association's objects are to provide the village of Aylburton with a water supply at the discretion of the trustees. The charges that are received for this service will be used for costs in relation to providing and maintaining this supply. Any residue remaining will be applied as trustees think fit for the benefit of the village of Aylburton.

 The charity is administered by a committee of members elected at each Annual General Meeting, which will be held in March. When decisions have to be made at any General Meeting, each household or organisation will have one vote but if there is an equality of votes the person who is chairing the meeting shall have a casting vote.

The committee intends to apply to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for formal recognition as a charity for tax purposes.

 If you require any further information, please contact the Secretary, on 01594 841294 or email  aylburtonwater@gmail.com

Advice Notice

A water quality test at the storage tanks in Church Road has shown that there is a very low level of bacterial contamination in the supply. The committee is working with the Environmental and Regulatory Services group (ERS), formerly FODDC Environmental Health, to resolve this problem.

If the supply at your house has a treatment unit fitted such as a UV steriliser then you do not need to take any further action except to check that the unit is functioning properly.

 

If your supply is untreated however you need to take the following action:

Use previously boiled water or bottled water for

· Drinking

· making ice cubes

· brushing teeth

· preparing salads

You can continue to use the water supply for

· bathing and washing (except open wounds)

· washing dishes - use hot water and dry thoroughly before use

· washing clothes

· flushing the toilet

You should continue to take these precautions until you receive a notice to say that the water supply can be used normally.
