The Scottish Water DOMS scheme has been produced to ensure everyone follows a consistent approach across the Scottish Water Region to safeguard public health and the water quality supplied to customers. By taking this consistent and structured approach to the operation and maintenance of water distribution assets, problems affecting water quality such as discolouration, microbiological failures and issues with taste and odours will be avoided or reduced. The Scottish Water DOMS scheme builds upon the public health principles covered by the EUSR National Water Hygiene training scheme.
