The need for water quality monitoring

According to WHO at least 1.6 million people die every year because of lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation.

In 1985, before implementing chlorination regulation and before determining the rules of protective radius around the drill drinking water, a massive dysentery infection hurt about 8 thousand people in a short time when sewage penetrated a drinking waterhole. In that incident, wastewater entered the groundwater and no one could identify in advance and on spot of the infection because there was no continuous monitoring of water quality supplied that could alert the water supplier that water quality has worsened.

Understanding the importance of water quality for public health, setting standards and criteria are in the hands of public health services in the Ministry of Health in Israel, including the Department of Environmental Health.  Some of the functions of the Department of Environmental Health in the field of water quality is to determine:

  • Microbial and chemical standards for drinking water.

  • Water quality control criteria.

  • Conditions and maintenance of the current operation.

  • Protective radius around the drill drinking water, where the size of the radius depends on the flow rate of the bored, bored depth and type of soil. Health officials are working to prevent the existence of activities in the field of protective radius, which may cause pollution of groundwater.

  • Rules for reporting and documentation requirements.

  • Employee training.

An update of drinking water regulations occurs relatively fast, depending on the findings of scientific studies and data collected by researchers and public health doctors worldwide. Sanitary quality of drinking water regulations in Israel were last updated in August 2013.
