The Drinking Water Directive sets the standards for drinking water quality. Currently the Water Supply (Water Quality)(Scotland) 2001 and The Water Quality (Scotland) Regulations 2010 regulations transpose this Directive.
The purpose of part 1 of this consultation paper is to set out the Scottish Government’s draft proposals for amendments to the 2001 and 2010 Regulations and to encourage the water industry and all other interested parties to comment on the proposals and the specific issues raised.
The purpose of part 2 of this consultation is to seek views on the transposition of Council Directive 2013/51/Euratom by means of subsequent amendments to these Regulations. These views will help inform the Scottish Governments final transposition of this Directive.
