Preparing a water safety plan
This document has been developed to help you to prepare a water safety plan (formerly known as a Public Health Risk Management Plan, PHRMP) for your small drinking-water supply.
The document provides a qualitative narrative and a series of worksheets to assist in this exercise. You are also encouraged to refer to the Water Safety Plan Guides containing the specific system elements most frequently found in drinking-water supplies.
