Due to its malleability, low melting point, corrosion resistance, and versatility lead has been used in plumbing systems since ancient times and remains ubiquitous in the UK plumbing network (Rocha and Trujillo 2019). Owing to its toxic and persistent nature, lead is considered one of the most important environmental pollutants and is a major threat to human health (Boskabady et al. 2018). Scottish Water has worked to remove lead pipes from the mains distribution system although some pipes carrying water to customers houses may still be made of lead and require replacement. Scottish Water would like to identify specific areas of Scotland with significant levels of lead in drinking water to identify areas which are likely to contain lead pipes in the water distribution network. Water quality data have been collected from customers tap water throughout Scotland and analysed for water quality determinants (lead, pH, temperature, phosphate). These determinants may also be affected by the time of year when samples were taken.
The aims of this project are to identify areas throughout Scotland which are hotspots for lead contamination in tap water; determine whether lead content in tap water shows seasonal patterns or is affected by water temperature; identify possible risk factors for returning a water sample which is positive for lead.
Datasets provided include:
Water quality data (including lead concentration values) collected from houses in Scotland from 2010 to 2018 using various sampling procedures Scottish house quality data for houses sampled randomly from each street postcode Communication pipe data describing composition, length and age of pipes supplying houses from the mains distribution network
