This book provides guidance for managing water supplies in buildings where people may drink water, use water for food preparation, wash, shower, swim or use water for other recreational activities or be exposed to aerosols produced by water-using devices, such as cooling towers. These uses occur in a variety of buildings, such as hospitals, schools, child and aged care, medical and dental facilities, hotels, apartment blocks, sport centres, commercial buildings, detention centres and transport terminals.
This publication is one of a series of supporting documents related to the World Health Organization’s Guidelines for Drinkingwater Quality. It is intended to support the improvement of water safety within buildings.
The book is particularly directed at those who design, construct, manage, operate, maintain and regulate building water systems. It is intended to be a useful resource for the development of training and information material.
