The water reaching your homes via the supply network undergoes the strictest controls. Royal Decree 140/2003 establishes which controls have to be carried out. These are divided into three levels:
- Aguas de Murcia conducts its own controls. Tests carried out in drinking water treatment plants, tanks and the distribution network.
- Murcia City Council carries out tests on consumers’ taps through its municipal laboratory. Tests in homes and public buildings.
- The Autonomous Community is responsible for health surveillance. Inspection, test and supervision programmes for the previous two controls.
Further guarantees are provided by the fact that, in the Region of Murcia, most of the drinking water is treated by the Canales del Taibilla Municipal Association and distributed to a numerous towns, who then carry out their own tests. In other words, a large number of towns and organisations all test the same water.
There are over 100 continuous analysers operating 24 hours a day to test the drinking water for turbidity, temperature, pH, conductivity and, above all, free chlorine at different points in the distribution network.
