Tap water: consume without moderation 

Tap water is the most controlled food product in Wallonia. Each year, our laboratory carries out around 25,000 analyses. The quality standards are very high and the risk of contamination is well below the standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO). All this makes the water 100% drinkable, safe and fresh


The role of the laboratory

Our laboratory not only ensures the conformity of your water supply; it also analyses raw groundwater and surface water.
