This guide is designed to help schools using a private drinking water supply to complete a water supply management plan. It details each step of the plan, followed by an example template. It uses as examples of two types of private drinking water supplies - rainwater and groundwater. These examples can be used as guidance on what to include in the plan. Every water supply system is different so the examples in this guide may not cover all the hazards and risks that need to be considered for each water supply system.
