This month of November has seen the start of the exchanges under Water Erasmus, the Aqua Publica Europea staff exchange programme. During one week, the Paris water operator Eau de Paris has hosted two employees from Gruppo CAP, the water operator serving the province around Milan. In turn, in January Gruppo CAP will host staff members from Eau de Paris.
The exchange between Eau de Paris and Gruppo CAP is centred on the implementation of Water Safety Plans, an approach to managing the safety and quality of water based on risk assessment and risk management. In order to illustrate how the Paris water operator is implementing this approach, the one-week exchange programme included visits to catchment areas and drinking water treatment plants and meetings with experts.
