What is WSP and its importance?

A water safety plan is a management strategy used to guarantee the availability of clean drinking water for human use. A comprehensive strategy to water management is necessary for effective safety planning, one that evaluates all potential hazards to the quality of drinking water along the supply chain, from the supplier to the consumer, and implements interventions to lower contamination risks.

Plans for water safety are proactive in nature, seeking to lessen risks before they materialize. The main goals of water safety plans are to purify water so that it is safe and to prevent contamination at the source or anywhere else in the storage and distribution system.

About 300 delegations from 108 recipient water districts, as well as guests, such as World Health Organization representatives and notable LWUA figures, attended the ceremony.
