Water Safety Plans

The Water Services Act 2021 has given unregistered suppliers four years to register and seven years to provide a drinking water safety plan, or to adopt an acceptable solution, under the Act.

The value of having a Water Safety Plan is to assess what risks could exist in the water supply and how to avoid them.

The plans give a comprehensive assessment of any public health risks and prioritises any improvements that could help reduce the risks.
