Water Quality

Water Quality

We play a major role in securing the quality of water for both consumption and recreational purposes.

To ensure the wholesomeness of the water you drink, we sample and carry out bacteriological and chemical analysis of water from Private Water Supplies, such as boreholes and springs.

Expert advice is also available on water quality issues such as contamination and Radon.

The prime responsibility for ensuring the quality of Mains Water Supplies (or ‘public’ supplies) lies with the local water undertaker, South West Water

The quality of water in beaches, rivers and lakes is inherently changeable. East Devon District Council, in conjunction, with the Environment Agency works to keep recreational waters as clean as possible.
