Hera and ISS together for the application of the Water Safety Plans

They are called Water Safety Plans and they are the European protocols for the monitoring of all phases of the production and distribution chain of drinking water. Considered in Directive 1787/2015, they require member states to comply as soon as possible, but Hera - as ever - does not plan to wait. Long since committed to the painstaking monitoring of its water network with a service that is able to guarantee economical and high quality drinking water right across the area it serves, the multiutility has signed a cooperation agreement with the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS - the Italian National Health Institute) to apply complete Water Safety Plans to two of its water systems in the 2017-2018 period. In this way, it will be able to learn the methodology and the skills outlined in the new legislation so it can then extend the Water Safety Plans to all of the water systems it manages. An important initiative that was the subject of a conference dedicated to industry experts - held on Wednesday 21 June at the multiutility’s Bologna site - that was also attended by the Group’s top management as well as the institutions and bodies involved in the project.

Guaranteed by over 2,000 controls a day, tap water is a priority for Hera, which has dedicated the specific “In Good Water” report to it. Now in its eighth edition, the report is published annually to provide details on all aspects of this fundamental service.
