Water Safety Plans (WSPs) are used by water utilities and their stakeholders as a comprehensive risk assessment and risk management approach from catchment to consumer, with the aim of consistently ensuring the safety and acceptability of a drinking-water supply. WSPs are increasingly recognised by utilities and regulators to not only ensure water quality for public health but to improve operational efficiency, identify more sustainable capital investments, and prepare for climate hazards.
