Northumbrian joins quality frontrunners with benchmark award win
Energy & Utility Skills, has awarded Northumbrian Water national accreditation for securing the strict quality standards for water quality operations.
Northumbrian Water joined Anglian Water as the earliest water companies to be recognised for achieving high industry standards laid down in the Competent Operator Scheme – a collaboration between Water UK, the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) and Energy & Utility Skills.
Energy & Utility Skills’ chief executive, Nick Ellins, said the scheme, “sets a nationwide benchmark of good practice that all the companies have signed up to. It is now an essential element of water quality assurance, with operator competence rightly embedded within the Principles of Water Supply Hygiene and water quality policy."
