Water quality control

Water quality control is our main goal


Water quality is established by controlling the presence of certain components, observing maximum concentration values for some of them and reference parameters for others (such as sodium, iron, magnesium and odour). Many of these components are harmless to the human body whilst others are only harmful when present in large amounts.

In the Aguas de Alicante laboratory, over 10,000 water samples are analysed per year. This means that tests of over 50,000 parameters are carried out annually, of which over 35,000 are on drinking water.

To establish drinkability levels, researchers use as a daily consumption benchmark of someone drinking an average of two litres of tap water a day for 70 years, with very generous safety margins. Hence we can safely say that the water we drink comes with a full health guarantee and can be safely consumed throughout life.

Application of state-of-the-art drinking water treatments and effective, continuous quality control of the water supply guarantee its health qualities.

Test parameters

Distribution network control test

To determine the physicochemical, organoleptic and microbiological characteristics of the water

Complete analysis of the network and tanks

To determine the organoleptic, physicochemical, metal, trihalomethane, pesticide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and microbiological content.

Radioactivity analysis

In accordance with the latest modification, Royal Decree 314/2016 establishes that potential radioactivity in drinking water must be tested.

Legionella testing

In accordance with Royal Decree 865/2003, establishing the health and hygiene criteria for the prevention and control of Legionnaires' disease in irrigation systems.

Drinking water is one of the world's most controlled resources.


We can drink it and cook without any concerns, as the water passes through many controls, from its source in nature to its delivery to our clients.

The Aguas de Alicante laboratory constantly and exhaustively analyses the water that we distribute in Alicante, Sant Vicent del Raspeig, El Campello, Sant Joan d’Alacant, Petrer and Monforte del Cid. It carries out microbiological and physicochemical analyses, observing over 80 parameters (metals, pesticides, pH, bacteria, turbidity, smell, colour, taste, etc.).

Currently, our professionals undertake:

In distribution networks:

  • Asupplementary tests: 855
  • Control tests: 1190
  • Complete test: 119

In distribution and regulation tanks:

  • Control test: 988
  • Complete tests: 37

Acceso a SINAC

We inform you that you can access the citizen access to the SINAC portal, National Information System for Drinking Water, which collects data on the characteristics of the supplies and one of its objectives is to provide basic information on the supply areas and the quality of the drinking water. human consumption.
