Water quality control

Control calidad del agua Viaqua

Your water should be quality water

Water quality control is our main goal

 

We have developed an Annual Analytical Control Plan in conjunction with the health authorities, which establishes test frequency and parameters for controls, ensuring at all times full compliance with regulations (Royal Decree 140/2003, regulating health criteria for the quality of water for human consumption and later amended on 01/08/2018 by Royal Decree 902/2018).

At Viaqua, we work to guarantee health, quality and cleanliness of water. To do this, we comply with all legally established safety and hygiene requirements to protect people’s health.

All tests are performed by an external certified laboratory that guarantees the highest standards of reliability in the results. These results are then sent to the Ministry of Health and entered into the National Drinking Water Information System (SINAC).

To determine the organoleptic, physicochemical, metal, trihalomethane, pesticide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and microbiological content.

Radioactivity analysis

In accordance with the latest modification, Royal Decree 140 establishes that potential radioactivity in drinking water must be tested.

Controls
 

We also use remotely managed automatic control systems that enable us to continually check and correct water quality indicators: residual free chlorine.

In addition, residual and total free chlorine is measured every day, randomly choosing the control points and their frequency throughout the distribution network, with special emphasis on critical points at network terminals.
