Reviewing best practice in the delivery of good drinking water quality using a prevention-led approach


This project aims to collect evidence of a prevention-led approach within catchments and the benefit and value that this can potentially bring to safeguarding drinking water supplies in Scotland. The main focus will be on European countries, however, the project will explore international literature. The project is specifically interested in best practice measures which address organics in drinking water (e.g. Dissolved Organic Carbon) as well as taste and odour issues, from both diffuse and point sources.
Project Objectives :
•    Identify countries, preferably with some similarities to Scotland in terms of water challenges or regulatory framework, to use as case studies for the project.
•    Review current best practice in the implementation of a prevention-led approach in the case study countries
•    Host and deliver a workshop that will include representation from the case study countries and Scottish stakeholders.
•    Identify best practice in the implementation of a prevention-led approach in the context of Scotland and the benefits and value that this could bring to water management in Scotland.
