Toelichting (Engels) The temperature of drinking water is an important parameter, affecting physical, chemical, biological and aesthetic properties of the water. Currently, measurements exceeding the legal limit of 25ᵒC at the tap are exceptional. However, there are reasons to believe that the number of exceedances will increase due to climate change and urbanization. So far the effects of sunlight hours and soil coverage on drinking water temperature have already been quantified quite well. Still lacking is the exact effect of anthropogenic heat sources on these temperatures. In this study more insight is given in the extent of this effect for Rotterdam, and measures are discussed to mitigate or to prevent drinking water warming.
