Be prepared in a water emergency
From time-to-time losses of supply, either due to issues on the public or your own private networks, are inevitable. Wave’s range of alternative water supplies and contingency planning services give you the means to effectively plan for, and respond to, supply interruptions when, or if, they do occur.
Contingency Planning Service
Putting a contingency plan in place allows you to not only highlight possible risks at your site but also help build resilience and mitigate any potential costs that may be caused by an unforeseen interruption to your water supply. To collect the information required, our partners, Water Direct, will carry out a site assessment and work with you to create a tailor-made contingency plan for your business.
The assessment will review your site’s current contingency arrangements for water, including a review of emergency plans (a statutory requirement for some sites). You’ll also receive practical recommendations for how and where emergency water supplies (tankers and/or bottled water) can be procured and delivered to your site, avoiding issues like cross contamination.
