Abstract

The Dutch drinking water sector complies with the most restrictive guidelines in the world and has a long-standing history of striving for excellence in water quality standards. The Dutch Association of Drinking Water Companies (Vewin) concluded in 2015 to lower the standard on arsenic in drinking water to 1 µg L−1. Following the new recommendation Brabant Water, a major water supply company in The Netherlands developed its masterplan on arsenic reduction by analysing the presence of arsenic in the systems from source to tap. Several measures were put in place to integrate arsenic into water safety planning in order to manage the risks. The underlying cost-benefit study and its implication on water safety planning at Brabant Water is discussed in this presentation.
