Drinking Water Code of Practice

The Public Health (Drinking Water) Code of Practice 2007 provides a framework for water quality management relating to the supply of drinking water under a Drinking Water Utility Licence in the Australian Capital Territory.

The code of practice specifies the technical requirements for the supply, quality, monitoring of, and reporting on drinking water in the ACT. The code of practice also documents the notification procedures the Water Utility must follow if an incident occurs that poses an imminent risk to public health.

For more information or advice on the code of practice please contact the Health Protection Service on (02) 6205 1700.
