Supporting Programmes


Supporting programmes include actions addressing workers, equipment and records that ensure the successful implementation of the WCSP but that do not directly affect water safety. Examples of activities to be considered are related with staff training, research & development, equipment calibration and maintenance, record keeping and legal aspects.

At the integrated level, supporting programmes are intended to complement supporting programmes already existing at system level, to optimize the resources and efforts needed for those SSP’s programmes and to coordinate interventions. Also, issues that water utilities cannot cover individually should be dealt with at the integrated level.

Some programmes might require the involvement of other stakeholders besides the water utilities (e.g. a monitoring programme for drinking water sources where the water quality is monitored by the catchment authority in coordination with the drinking water utility).


Key actions

  1. Identify and develop supporting programmes needed for the implementation of the WCSP

  2. Review supporting programmes

Dutch drinking water companies have a long term joint research programme with KWR Watercycle Research Institute to be prepared for future threats to drinking water safety.
