Aquatest: Testing Scenarios and Global Regulatory Review

sponsored by the University of Bristol
The Aquatest project, led by the University of Bristol, examined improved, cost-efficient approaches to monitoring drinking water quality to support better management of water safety in urban and rural settings. The Water Institute contributed to two components of this project: evaluating realistically-achievable changes to current water quality monitoring practices in response to potential simplified testing methods, and characterizing regulatory approaches and monitoring requirements for microbial contaminants of drinking water supply worldwide.
