Water Quality

Water Quality Image

Water quality affects all UK inhabitants, from domestic properties to large-scale industry, from the utilities that provide water in our homes to the treatment of effluents. Water quality standards cross most industrial sectors including agriculture, the food and beverage industry, building services management (dominated by the control of Legionella regulations) and construction, health and safety, utilities, the leisure industry, and more.

BSI water quality standards mirror regulations in the UK and Europe, including the Water Framework Directive, and are constantly revised and new ones are created to reflect changes in legislation and mandatory requirements. They are essential tools in the work of regulators, applied scientists involved with water supply, wastewater, public health and building professionals, environmental monitoring experts, and consultants.
