What areas of water quality do Environmental Health Officers look at?

Bathing waters

To include swimming pools at leisure centres, jacuzzi's, hydrotherapy pools.

We are responsible for checking the quality of all our swimming pools to include leisure centres, private health clubs, hotels and out door pools, hospital hydrotherapy pools, jacuzzi's and paddling pools.

Mains water supply

To include manufacturers of foods and drinks as well as occasionally looking at domestic supply.

We also examine the quality of the mains water in our food manufacturers to include breweries and other food industries. We may occasionally become involved in the testing of domestic mains water in addition to the statutory water undertaker.

In addition, the Drinking Water Inspectorate, who are the national body for ensuring the quality of water, provide an annual publication titled 'How Good is Your Drinking Water'.
