Advisory: Guidelines for purchasing water from processing plants and delivery vehicles

Water is an essential element of our daily lives and our immediate environment. Its significance lies in sustaining our health and well-being, but it can also pose health risks when contaminated. Contaminated water, when consumed, can lead to waterborne diseases resulting in symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting. Vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly, immunocompromised individuals, and pregnant women, are particularly at risk.

The GA-FDD ensures the availability of safe and clean water for all Guyanese by regularly inspecting and licensing water processing facilities. This ensures the use of good manufacturing practices and guarantees that the water remains free from pathogens.

Guidelines for Buying Water from Processing Plants and Delivery Vehicles

  1. Verify Licensing: Always ensure that your water supplier is licensed by the Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD), and check for the company label affixed to the bottle.
  2. Verify Labels: Look for clear and accurate labelling that includes important information like the name and address of the processor.
  3. Inspect Packaging: Examine to ensure the water containers are free from cracks, leaks, mould, or grime, and make sure caps are intact and not damaged.
  4. Check Delivery Vehicles: Make sure the delivery vehicle is clean and in good condition.
  5. Ask About Testing: Inquire about the water quality testing procedures conducted by the processing plant and request access to the results if available.
  6. Prioritise Cleanliness: Wash your bottles with soap and hot water before refilling them.
  7. Regular Bottle Replacement: Consider changing your plastic bottles at least every two years, ideally annually, to prevent the buildup of bacteria and contaminants. This is especially important for plastic bottles that can degrade and release chemicals into the water.
  8. Check Water Quality: Examine the water for colour and sediments. It should be clear, tasteless, and odourless.
  1. Store Properly: Once purchased, store bottled water in a cool, clean, and dry place, away from direct sunlight and chemicals.
  2. Avoid Unlabeled Products: Refrain from purchasing water containers that lack proper labelling or appear suspicious.
  3. Don’t Compromise on Cleanliness: Reject containers that appear dirty or have damaged seals, as they may have been exposed to contaminants.
  4. Question Unclear Sources: Be cautious of water with unclear or questionable sources, and don’t hesitate to ask for more information.

By following these guidelines, consumers can make informed choices when purchasing water from processing plants and delivery vehicles, ensuring the safety and quality of the product.
