A water carrier is defined as a person who supplies drinking water in bulk, other than pre-packaged drinking water or pre-packaged ice, via transportation in a water tank, whether or not for fee or reward.

This registration only covers water accessed from the regulated Agency and does not include cartage of privately owned water.
