We are not currently able to take samples of water from vessels.

This decision has been made in line with other Port Health Authorities and the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA). We will continue to monitor the national, regional and local situation and follow the advice from both government and Public Health Scotland.

Drinking water samples can be taken and submitted to our Public Analyst for microbiological examination and, if required, chemical analysis on request.

Advance notification must be given to ensure arrangements can be made. There is a charge for this service. Requests can be made by emailing porthealth@falkirk.gov.uk.

Testing for Legionella is not available.
