I'd like detailed information about water quality and the water industry."

This section contains information and reference material relating to the legislative environment for drinking water supplies in Scotland.

The DWQR annual report "Drinking Water Quality in Scotland" is contained here and it provides a good overview for those wishing to know more about all aspects of water quality. The report contains information on both Scottish Water's performance in relation to the public water supply and the performance of local Authorities in enforcing the Private Water Supply requirements in each calendar year. Although it deals with a technical subject, every attempt is made to write the report in language that makes the information accessible to as many people as possible.

Other topical information is provided to health professionals in the form of a newsletter as issues come to light.
