Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) (French)
 

The version of the Design Guidelines for Drinking Water Production Facilities (Design Guidelines) presented here is an official version. It updates and replaces the preliminary version published on this site in June 2001. Since changes are made to the Design Guidelines on an ongoing basis, some chapters or parts of chapters will be periodically updated.

Design Guidelines consists of two volumes. Volume 1 contains information on the designer’s approach and main design criteria for facilities. Volume 2 contains more detailed descriptions and additional information on design. The second volume’s structure makes cross referencing with the contents of Volume 1easy.

We suggest that you begin by reading chapters 1 and 2 of Volume 1 to get acquainted with the scope of Design Guidelines and the main changes that have been made to its layout. This guide has become an indispensable work tool and we hope you’ll enjoy consulting it.

Chapters marked with an asterisk were modified in September and October 2017 (update 6). Consult the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more details.
