Drinking Water Quality

The Environmental Health team deal with enquiries about the quality of drinking water.

Mains water must meet certain legal standards, and we monitor the results of tests carried out by the water company, Essex and Suffolk water.

Our leaflet called ‘The quality of drinking water’ which you can view or download from the Related Content section gives further advice on the types of things that can affect the taste, smell or appearance of drinking water.

Or if you require any further advice you may contact us by phone on 01702 318111 and ask for Environmental Health, or e-mail using this form
