A New Approach to Assessing Water Quality Risk
Stephen Westgate and Matthew Robertson
Published in Water e-Journal, Volume 3 Issue 3, 5 September 2018

This paper highlights the robust model TasWater has developed to assess and manage water quality risk. The visual assessment tool plots the results onto a single chart, to allow for visualisation and prioritisation of water quality risk reduction activities across all 51 of TasWater’s potable drinking water systems. This has allowed for the development of efficient programs of operational improvements and capital upgrades to reduce risk to consumers. This paper is a valuable contribution to water industry knowledge in Australia.
