Water quality control

Control calidad del agua societario

Your water should be quality water


We have developed an Annual Analytical Control Plan in conjunction with the health authorities, which establishes test frequency and parameters for controls, ensuring at all times full compliance with regulations (Royal Decree 140/2003 and Royal Decree 902/2018, regulating health criteria for the quality of water for human consumption, Royal Decree 314/2016, which incorporates basic criteria for health protection against hazards derived from ionising radiation in water for human consumption, and Royal Decree 865/2003, which regulates the health and sanitary criteria for the prevention and control of Legionnaires' disease) and other criteria established by the Directorate-General for Public Health of the Region of Murcia Health Department.

At Hidrogea, we work to guarantee the health, quality and cleanliness of water. To do this, we comply with all legally established safety and hygiene requirements to protect people’s health.

All tests are performed by an external certified laboratory that guarantees the highest standards of reliability in the results. These results are then sent to the Ministry of Health and entered into the National Drinking Water Information System  (SINAC).

Analysis Example

Test parameters

Distribution network control test

To determine the physicochemical, organoleptic and microbiological characteristics of the water

Complete analysis of the network and tanks

To determine the organoleptic, physicochemical, metal, trihalomethane, pesticide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and microbiological content

Radioactivity analysis

In accordance with the latest modification, Royal Decree 140 establishes that potential radioactivity in drinking water must be tested.

Boron and PVC analysis

In accordance with the tighter controls for these parameters to ensure water quality, due to the growing importance of desalinated water for the supply of drinking water.

Legionella analysis

In accordance with Royal Decree 865/2003, establishing the health and hygiene criteria for the prevention and control of Legionnaires' disease in irrigation systems.

We also use remotely managed automatic control systems that enable us to continually check and correct water quality indicators: Residual chlorine, pH, conductivity and turbidity.

These automatic controls supplement lab controls, in compliance with the Drinking Water Quality Control Plan, which establishes the health criteria for the quality of drinking water.

Quality reports on water supplied
