You may have seen in the news the warnings issued by United Utilities about drinking water safety in the north west of England, affecting areas including Blackpool, Preston, Chorley and other surrounding districts, when the bug cryptosporidium was detected in drinking water last week.
The official advice from the water authorities has been to boil water before drinking which is good advice for any water stored under uncontrolled conditions.
Tardis Environmental stepped into the breach with emergency drinking water deliveries, one tanker into Blackpool due as we write.
Our H2O division is ever ready for situations such as this, with supplies of quality assured wholesome drinking water which can be delivered in bowsers (towable and static) or for bulk situations, in tankers like shown in the photos.
Smaller or domestic requirements can be catered for by the provision of pallets of bottled drinking water available in a range of sizes from 330ml to 1.5 litres.
Where water safety is suspect, we provide water testing services for E coli and Legionella as well as a range of water hygiene services such as welfare cabin testing and cleansing and bowser cleansing all fully documented and to Health & Safety guidelines.
Drinking water is something we take very much for granted in this country, until things go wrong. Fortunately, the UK has some of the strictest water regulations you’ll find anywhere and Tardis Environmental has the expertise and resources to step up to the crease when needed.
