About this book

The Bonn Network is a global group of water suppliers who have adopted the Bonn Charter for Safe Drinking Water. The network was originally established to develop and share best practice in drinking water quality management. Drinking Water Quality Management from Catchment to Consumer is a best practice book that brings together the experience of network members provides a practical guide to help utilities worldwide to develop improved water quality management. It is based on the principles of the Bonn Charter and water safety plans and is intended to complement and support other relevant publications particularly the WHO Water Safety Plan Manual.

This emphasis is on practical information by operators for operators, learning from the experience of a range of water suppliers across the world. The book supports and encourages users to think through the best way for implementation in their local situation. It recognises that whilst water suppliers are central to the provision of good drinking water, this has to take place within a broader legal, institutional, and financial framework which is the responsibility of Government and others. It highlights the ways that water suppliers can work with many other partners to ensure that all are committed to the same goal of good safe drinking water.
