Legal water quality standards
What happens when a supply does not meet legal water quality standards?
In the first instance, we will advise that the supply constitutes a potential danger to human health. We will also give advice on steps that can be taken to
- minimise any immediate danger
- ensure the water meets statutory standards for drinking water
Where no action is taken to improve the water supply, we will normally serve a formal notice requiring the duty holder to improve the quality of the water supply.
