"Water safety planning is a comprehensive risk assessment and risk management approach that encompasses all steps in a drinking-water supply chain, from catchment to consumer" International Water Association (IWA)

In this webinar, we touch on water quality testing for the long term, systematic measurement of individual water points, consistent with the Water Safety Plan (WSP) approach developed by the World Health Organization and IWA. In addition to reviewing the key modules of the WSP,  we present a detailed step-by-step example of setting up a water quality monitoring programme for the rural water context, and the importance of field testing kits and innovative digital tools to handle the high volume of data generated from WSPs.

Watch this webinar and discover:

  • The 11 modules of Water Safety Plans and what they mean
  • How to incorporate water quality testing into the WSP following the multi-barrier concept
  • What the potential water contamination hazards are and how to develop and control measures to the risk of each hazard
  • How to go paperless and improve quality assurance
