Service Description

Tank water is subject to many contaminants which can affect the water quality. Ongoing monitoring of quality is essential to the health and well being of those who use the water for drinking, food preparation and consumption. Water quality in your facilities is your responsibility The Public Health Act 2010 and the Public Health Regulation 2012 commenced on 1 September 2012. Is your tap water suitable for drinking? What if someone becomes infected with E Coli or any other contaminant in the water stored, or consumed, on your premises? How do you prevent that happening and what would you do if it happened tomorrow? If you have any tank storage of water, you are a ‘Water Supplier’ and you must have, and adhere to, a ‘Quality Assurance Program’; it is the law. If Sydney Water provides ‘Potable’ water to your meter and you collect and store your own water onsite, water quality at your taps is your responsibility. Any business or facility that supplies people with drinking water from an independent water supply is a water supplier. This includes water from rivers, creeks, bores, dams and water from rainwater tanks. It does not include supplies provided by water utilities (i.e. town water) or individual household supplies. Facilities with a private water supply include but are not limited to: Schools and home based child care Community halls Conference centres Recreational and sporting facilities Caravan parks, camping grounds and manufactured home estates Guest houses, bed and breakfast accommodation, motels, backpacker accommodation, farmstay accommodation and hotels Petrol stations and roadhouses Food manufacturing premises Cafes and restaurants Marinas Mines and worksites Source: https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/environment/water/Publications/private-water-supply-guidelines.pdf We are experienced Water Quality Technicians available as consultants to advise you on your risks and, if required, to assist in the management of your water quality.
