Scotland's water quality even better

The quality of drinking water in Scotland is the best it has ever been, according to the annual report of the Drinking Water Quality Regulator (DWQR).

They report that well over 99 per cent of tests on samples complied with strict regulatory standards. Consumer satisfaction with the water supply across Scotland has also increased. In 2010 with Scottish Water receiving fewer contacts from consumers concerned about the quality of their supplies.

A Drinking Water Quality Regulator (DWQR) spokesman said:
"We are delighted with these results that show Scottish tap water is top quality. Households can be confident that the drinking water from their tap has been tested thousands of times each year, and that it meets some of the tightest quality standards in the world.

In contrast the regulator expressed concern over the quality of private water supplies. 18.35% of samples taken from these supplies last year contained the E.coli bacterium.

Public clearly works. Join the campaign to keep our public water service out of the hands of the privatisers. It's Scotland's water and it's not for sale.
