Water safety plans (WSPs) are risk management tools
designed to assure the safety of drinking water. This paper
outlines the development of a Geographic Information
System (GIS) to assess and manage risk data which supports
the development of the WSP. Findings presented in the
paper are based on research undertaken by the Water.
