Estates Services Drinking water advice

The University provides a network of water coolers on campus. Just bring your reusable bottle.

Drinkable water supply within the University is provided either:

  • directly from mains water from the Scottish Water network, or
  • from cold water storage tanks within buildings.

Estates Services has procedures in place to manage water services within the University.

Drinking water management is carried out as follows:

  • all water storage tanks are inspected every six months
  • routine drinking water testing takes place every six months
  • the water storage tanks are disinfected annually.
