Cluster 3 Summary
Cluster 3 includes WPs 10, 11 and 12. These three WPs will develop and implement appropriate environmental monitoring programmes that use the technologies developed, standardised and validated in cluster 2. The three WPs cover each of the domains where we consider that the main value to public health of these technologies resides. WP 10 is concerned with large drinking water utilities and will include sampling of raw and treated water sourced from surface and ground waters and subject to different treatment regimes. WP 11 is concerned with small drinking water systems that are the source of drinking water for about 10% of the European population. It is these systems that carry the most risk to their consumers. WP12 is concerned with water used in food production.
