Making Plans for Water Loss
In the UK we take our quality assured, and normally uninterrupted mains water supply for granted. This supply of water is essential for both the welfare of your employees and critical to the smooth running of your business.
A water supply can be interrupted due to number of reasons such as planned maintenance work, a burst mains pipe, contamination of the supply, or a pump set failure on site.
What costs would you incur if you lost your water supply?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR COMPANY'S WATER SUPPLY WAS LOST RIGHT NOW?
If you have a business continuity plan which states that in the event of a water loss or contamination incident, that a nominated person is to inform the respective water supply company about the problem, you have at least acknowledged the risks attached to loosing your water supply.
However, does your plan document who will provide you with an emergency water supply, how long you can continue to trade until they get there, how does that water supplier physically deliver the water into your building?
Do you expect your water utility company to provide an emergency supply in the event of a water loss incident? ...Have you actually asked them, to see if they would respond?
