Water quality

Thames Water supply mains water to most premises in our district. They are responsible for ensuring that the water they supply is safe to drink. However, we work with Thames Water by checking compliance with standards and responding to any incidents.

We have responsibility for monitoring the quality of private water supplies (ie supplies not provided by a water company) and bathing water in swimming pools and spa pools in the district.

The frequency of our monitoring is risk based and dependant on factors such as the frequency of usage of the pool. It is the responsibility of the operator to carry out their own more frequent checks.
