In connection with the Drinking Water Directive’s amendment, we are exploring the option of introducing risk management – an approach based on comprehensive risk assessment and management in river basins (at water abstraction points), in public water supply systems, and in in-house water distribution systems. We are also weighing up the option of modifying the criteria for healthy drinking water, providing more information to the public, and obtaining information on water losses in water supply systems.
We collect data and participate in the compilation of reports on the quality of drinking water in Slovakia’s large and small water supply areas, as required by the European Commission (i.e. Reports of Slovakia on the quality of water for human consumption). These reports are available on the Public Health Authority of the Slovak Republic website.
