Mott MacDonald produces Drinking Water Safety Plans for Scotland

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Scottish Water to produce Drinking Water Safety Plans (DWSPs) covering the entire population of Scotland. Mott MacDonald will work alongside consultancies MWH and Halcrow to produce DWSPs for 290 public water supplies.

The plans are intended to identify potential source hazards at all points on the supply chain and implement control measures to minimise the risk of contamination. A system of routine monitoring of the control measures and a plan of remedial action when a control measure is not within the target will also be developed as part of the plan.

The DWSPs will be undertaken by a number of teams including Mott MacDonald’s experts in water treatment. Key activities for the teams include data collection and analysis, site visits, risk workshops. As well as identifying and documenting risks, controls and emergency procedures into the DWSPs.

David Smith, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said, “The DWSPs programme will be critical in identifying potential quality and quantity risks for Scottish Water. Mott MacDonald has a strong commitment to Scottish Water and as a framework consultant has undertaken a wide variety of projects on water supply throughout Scotland.”

Scottish Water expects to have all plans completed by 2012.
