Water Direct working practices conform to BS 8551:2015 Provision & Management of Temporary Water Supplies and Distribution Networks Code of Practice. These temporary water supply standards give guidance on the provision of temporary water supplies and wholesomeness of the water supplied to Construction sites as well as Festivals and Events where it is the responsibility of Site Managers and Event Organisers to ensure a safe and wholesome drinking water supply is available.
To assist in meeting these requirements Water Direct provides quality assured water and infrastructure systems for temporary water supply anywhere, at any time that a piped water supply is unavailable, unusable or inadequate.
All Water Direct technicians undertake stringent training in line with industry best practices and hold the National Water Hygiene Scheme Card (accredited by the Energy & Utility Skills Register). This is a requirement for anyone working on ‘Restricted Operations’, which are defined as working with treated or partially treated sources of drinking water or sources of untreated underground water.
