Scottish Water ups its drinking water compliance to 99.92%
The Drinking Water Quality Regulator for Scotland’s latest annual report (for 2019) shows Scottish Water’s compliance with the stringent standards set for drinking water remains high at 99.92% – a slight improvement on last year and consistent with previous years.
Drinking Water Quality Regulator, Sue Petch, said: “I am pleased to report that compliance with the standards has been sustained at a high level. This verifies our trust that the drinking water supplied by Scottish Water continues to be of the highest quality.
“We should not take water quality for granted, and challenges such as climate change, altering demand patterns and the capability of treatment assets will all have an increasing impact on water quality in the future. I will continue my work to ensure that Scottish Water meets these challenges by planning ahead and investing appropriately.”
