Tap water, quality water

Agua del grifo, Agua de calidad

Drinking water of the highest quality

 

To establish the quality required of tap water, the European Union, following WHO guidelines, sets the limits for components present in water, including pathogenic microorganisms and toxins, although many of these are harmless to the human body (some are even beneficial), whilst other are only harmful when present in large amounts.

The World Health Organization and the European Union define safe drinking water as water that a person can drink every day for their whole life without any risk to their health.

 

Our water has easily passed health authority controls, thanks to the application of state-of-the-art drinking water treatments and effective, continuous quality control of the water supply.

The water supplied through the Canaragua network has a medium low saline content. Average hardness values are 40-50º fH.

Tap water quality is the responsibility of:

  • The Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs
  • The health authorities of the autonomous communities
  • Town councils
  • The supply companies
  • Owners of the indoor installations in their property

To find out about the water supply in any town or municipality, you can consult the National Drinking Water Information System (SINAC).
