Objective of the audit was to evaluation of entire process of water provision from abstraction of waster (abstraction of the water, transportation, unloading, suitability, conditions and suitability of the road tankers for carrying domestic water), checking hygiene conditions, licenses, competence of drivers and other personnel (availability of training, routine treatment of tanks, etc). Validity of results provided by City of Poti lab (in particular results of microbiological testing) was checked. Samples from water supply system were collected for sanitary and microbiological analysis. The state of maintenance and suitability of the road tanks was checked. According to results of chemical analysis of the main components and sanitary characteristics are in the limits of WHO guidelines. Considered was possibility for the use of Poti municipal water supply as alternative source of water provision to the BP site in Supsa. However, taking into account the status of the Poti system (restricted power supply, insufficiency of water reserve) the latter cannot be considered as a sound alternative. A selection of alternative source requires special time and affords and funds and can be the subject of a separate study.
