Used water is not an alternative supply to fresh water – it has always been the supply. Although water is renewable, there is only a fixed amount on earth. The same water that was here billions of years ago still exists today and must be used again and again over centuries to come.
This means there is no “new” water available, and much water must be treated in order to be re-used. When wastewater is treated, those discharges become a source of drinking water for downstream users. Most of the world’s population drinks from rivers and streams that have received these discharges.
It is a legal duty to carry out a risk assessment to identify and assess whether there is a risk posed by exposure to Legionella from the hot and cold water system or any work associated with it. We offer professional Legionella Risk Assessments and Testing to help compliance with current UK Health and Safety regulations.
