    WATER QUALITY TESTING – EVENTS MANAGEMENT

    Bacteria test kits for Events Management

    Danger Areas

    The Events Management industry has grown substantially over the past decade whereby the ‘events’ have become more widespread and cater for greater numbers of people.

    Showgrounds and music festivals are typical examples where there are tens of thousands of visitors for a period of just a few days followed by months of inactivity.

    It is essential that planners disinfect and flush all the water systems prior to the event taking place and ensure that the water quality is laboratory tested. In these instances the water should be checked for its potability (ie fit to be drunk) which entails analysis for:-

    • Total Viable Count at 22°C
    • Total Viable Count at 37°C
    • E.Coli
    • Coliforms

    A new British Standard has been released:-

    BS 8551 Provision and management of temporary water supplies and distribution networks (not including provisions for statutory emergencies) – Code of practice.

    This document is intended for all temporary water supplies so includes construction sites as well as public events such as:-

    • Festivals
    • Public displays
    • Temporary caravan and camping grounds associated with these events
