Water quality

We look at water quality in three areas:

  • private water supplies - for those who extract their water from boreholes, wells and natural springs. We monitor for bacteria and chemical parameters
  • bathing waters - including swimming pools at leisure centres, jacuzzis and hydrotherapy pools, hotels and private health clubs. We check for chemical levels and bacteria through our sampling programme
  • mains water - including manufacturers of food and drink and, sometimes, the domestic supply. Yorkshire Water is the provider of mains water within the Harrogate district
