Case study of the application of Water Safety Plans in a school in Romania

WECF's Margriet Samwel contributes to WHOCC news letter with article on Water Safety Plans

28.01.2011 |Margriet Samwel

The Water Safety Plan (WSP) is a concept for developing a process-orientated observation of the watersupply. Risks that could affect water safety and human
health need to be identified at every stage of the watersupply: from the potential risks of water pollution in the catchment area all the way along the line to the consumers.
Once the risk is known, measures to minimiseand manage the risks need to be determined. The finalproducts – maps, posters, reports, a safe water strategy - give the local community information on how to avoid the risks of pollution.

The focus of WECF activities on developing WSP for small-scale water supply systems involving schools was to build local capacity and strengthen and mobilize the community to improve access to safe drinking water.
