Guernsey Water successfully achieves safety benchmarks


The island’s water has met and exceeded several benchmarks for safe, high quality drinking water.

Guernsey Water has published the latest figures in the 2020 Water Quality Report, which shows that several key performance indicators have been achieved.

“We know that customers value both the quality of our drinking water and our commitment to return wastewater safely to the environment,” said Water Quality Risk Manager, Margaret McGuiness.

“We are incredibly proud of our latest results but want to assure our customers that work on improving the water quality continues.”

 The states-owned asset regularly tested water supplies during 2020 for roughly 125 different pesticides. It also conducted 7,341 laboratory tests on water samples.

“At Guernsey Water we operate using current Drinking Water Inspectorate regulations and guidance as best practice,” continued Ms McGuiness.

“This means we need to meet very high standards and thanks to our committed team and technical experience we have been able to excel on these targets for another year running.”
