Abstraction licences for quarry dewatering

The period for applying for dewatering abstraction licences under the transitional arrangements is now almost half way through. Hafren Water is currently applying for licences at more than 40 quarries throughout England and Wales, we, therefore, have an excellent working knowledge of the requirements. However, we are finding that the take-up within the quarrying industry is worryingly slow and urge mineral operators to commence applications as soon as possible, to ensure that they are verified by the Environment Agency/ Natural Resources Wales within the application period. Please call us (01743 355770) to discuss how we can assist in obtaining the required licences - we welcome the opportunity to work with you.
