Risk assessment of CIP data with respect to implications for drinking water sources

Price: £200  

Water Safety Planning approaches underpin drinking water quality and safety management. This mandatory approach requires the systematic assessment of all hazards within catchments and their potential pathways to water, such that effective control measures can be implemented.

The Chemical Investigations Programme (CIP) has provided data on the concentrations of many trace substances in sewage influents, effluents and receiving waters. The current project, undertaken by Atkins and wca, intends to examine the CIP dataset from a drinking water quality perspective. The overall objective was to improve the understanding of the potential risks posed by trace substances to the quality of drinking water. The project included a review of the CIP data set, examining concentrations in effluent and receiving waters. This was followed by an ecotoxicological assessment of the potential human health impacts arising from the presence of trace substances in drinking water. Finally, current water treatment processes were reviewed, assessing their capability to remove key trace substances.

There is increasing public and scientific interest in the risk of emerging contaminants in drinking water and potential human health impacts. This project brings together the extensive CIP dataset and our knowledge of treatment technologies to examine this key
