Potable Water

Property owners take responsibility for the water distribution system within the building beyond the metering point, up to which the water utility is accountable for water safety and quality.

Water risk management programmes comprise regular testing and maintenance, tailored to the age and complexity of the distribution system and the vulnerability of occupants.

Health and aged care facilities require the most elaborate programmes to protect patients from infection, however, hotels and large commercial buildings may also have complex water systems requiring a water quality plan to be implemented.

QED Environmental Services develops water quality risk management plans to help protect occupants from:

  • Infection by microorganisms that breed in distribution and delivery systems, one example being legionella; and
  • Heavy metals, for instance lead.

We devise a management plan to determine how the distribution and delivery system can be improved and maintained, including an effective programme of testing cold water and warm water systems on a regular basis to confirm that maintenance practices are effective.

Our staff has experience dealing with outbreaks of infection and heavy metal contamination situations which require advanced testing, diagnostic and remediation activity, as well as liaising with relevant authorities and regulators.
