A complex SMS that involves government departments, state agencies, local authorities, and technical components such as water purification technologies and IT systems is responsible for the provision of safe drinking water to the general public in the Republic of Ireland. Figure 1 shows the key components of this SMS that include DWTPs, the Water Service Authorities (WSA) and state agencies such as the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) and the Health Service Executive (HSE). The WSA are special departments of the local authorities of the country. These are responsible for the day‐to‐day operation of DWTPs and should notify the EPA and be consulted by the HSE whenever a drinking water quality parameter exceeds its accepted quality threshold value.
