In order to reduce exposure to lead in drinking water, and in line with the Government national strategy to reduce exposure to lead in drinking water, the Domestic Lead Remediation Grant Scheme was introduced. The scheme was introduced to assist households with the costs of replacing lead piping or related fittings located within the internal distribution system connected to a domestic water supply that serves a house.
Section 2 of the Water Services Act 2007, as amended, provides that “internal distribution system” means that part of a distribution system, within the curtilage of a premises, which is used for the provision of water for human consumption or food or drinks production.
The scope of the grant and relevant definitions are as detailed in the Housing (Domestic Lead Remediation Grant) Regulations 2022 (S.I. No. 519 of 2022), which shall come into operation on 1st December 2022.
