CONTAMINANT DATABASES

WaterISAC members have single-sign-on access to these three leading contaminant databases. There is no need to login again to access these unique platforms.

U.S. EPA Water Contaminant Information Tool (WCIT)

WCIT is used by the water sector to prepare for, respond to or recover from drinking water and wastewater contamination incidents. WCIT includes comprehensive information about chemical, biological and radiological contaminants that could be introduced into a water system following a natural disaster, vandalism, accident or act or terrorism. There are currently over 800 priority contaminants of concern listed in WCIT. WCIT is available only to U.S. utility and government users.

Access Database

UKWIR Toxicity Datasheets

Toxicity Datasheets have been developed to provide information to assist water suppliers and other users to respond in a rapid and effective manner to water contamination incidents. The database has been compiled over many years and is the largest of its kind. It is maintained by WRc plc on behalf of UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR) and contains a wealth of information on over 600 chemicals.

Access Database

UKWIR Microbiology Datasheets

Datasheets have been developed to provide information on the health significance of microorganisms that may be of concern to drinking water suppliers. The database has been compiled over a number of years by WRc and the Health Protection Agency (HPA), now part of Public Health England, on behalf of UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR). These datasheets contain a wealth of information on bacteria, viruses and protozoa that may be present in drinking water.
