Big Bang North West: United Utilities – Test the Water
“It’s our job to bring three million households – not to mention 200,000 businesses, clean, clear water and to take it all away again so they can simply get on with their day. You may think that the water in your tap just falls from the sky, but did you know that a lot goes on behind the scenes to make sure it’s clean and safe for you to drink?”
“We use a range of methods to clean the water, one of which involves adding Chlorine, but if the levels of this chemical are too high it could potentially be harmful. To ensure we meet the compliance set by our regulators and to keep our customers safe, our water process technicians and scientists regularly check for safe levels of Chlorine in drinking water.”
“On our stand, you’ll have the opportunity to test the drinking water in Liverpool for Chlorine, using some real United Utilities equipment from our technical training centre.”
