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.
Select your town or municipality to find out the characteristics of the drinking water that is supplied.
