The Safe Drinking Water Plan for California includes the State Water Board's assessment of the overall quality of the state's drinking water, the identification of specific water quality problems, an analysis of the known and potential health risks that m ay be associated with drinking water contamination in California, and specific recommendations to improve drinking water quality.   Access to safe and affordable water is a basic human right. Many of our communities have been without safe water for years or even decades because of contamination of our drinking water sources. Living in communities without safe water is a public health crisis. It .

Protecting and maintaining water distributions systems is crucial to ensuring high quality drinking water. Distribution systems - consisting of pipes, pumps, valves, storage tanks, reservoirs, meters, fittings, and other hydraulic appurtenances - carry drinking water from a centralized treatment plant or well supplies to consumers and taps.

Protecting surface water for health provides guidance and supporting information on the development and application of WSPs in drinking-water catchments to address the assessment and control of surface-water hazards in an effective way.

Overview. Protecting surface water for health provides a structured approach to understanding surface waters and their catchments to support the identification, assessment and prioritization of the risks, and the development of management strategies for their control, as a basis for providing safe drinking-water.

Proceedings of a symposium held in Rome, September Publication Cited by:. The tools and approaches described herein focus on conducting risk assessment for water-related media (such as microorganisms in treated drinking water, source water for drinking water, recreational waters, shellfish waters, and biosolids), but are sufficiently general to help guide the.recontaminate water through recreational use or waste [9, 10].

Some [e.g., 7] account for secondary transmission in the water loop by using the prevalence of infection in the population to assess the amount of microbes shed into recreational water, resulting in increased contamination in drinking water.
