Annual Reports

Scottish Executive: The Drinking Water Quality Regulator's (DWQR) report into the state of supplies in 2006 shows that, of the 170,552 tests carried out on samples taken from consumers' taps, 99.66% met strict European standards.
 
More than 99% of samples were also clear of coliform bacteria, making these the best microbiology results since water quality regulations were introduced in 1991.
 
Despite this, the DWQR, Colin McLaren, warned that in a few areas the taste and appearance of drinking water is still an issue.  He stressed that Scottish Water must do more to ensure water is not only safe but also acceptable to consumers.
