Drinking water quality

Clean, safe water must be provided at schools, especially for drinking. Poor quality water can cause illness, and children are at the highest risk. Schools are either on town water supply or self-supply.

Town supply

Local authorities are responsible for water quality for schools on town supply.

Self-supply

If you're self-supplying then your board of trustees need to manage the quality of your water.
