Water Quality Report 2004 31 Evaluating and auditing water quality management systems is an important way to ensure the successful management of water quality data and processes. This report is an integral part of the review and evaluation process. Audits ensure that operational procedures and processes are in place so that accurate water quality data is collected and appropriate management systems are maintained. External Audits No external audits on the water quality management systems or facilities were conducted during the year. An external audit of all upgrade chlorination facilities is planned in the coming year. Internal Audits Formal internal audits of the water supply systems were not conducted this year, rather attention was focused on investigating and addressing issues of concern identifi ed in previous audits. Signifi cant focus continued to be placed on the risks associated with the potential for septic tank contamination of public water supply bores from the McMinns Borefi eld in the Darwin Rural Area. Water Quality Monitoring Program We continuously review our Water Quality Monitoring Program to evaluate the success of the program and to update it if required. Routine modifi cations to the existing program during the year included: Reducing the frequency of radiological and pesticide sampling to account for previous results. Additional sampling points in Tennant Creek to enhance the ability to identify potential problems. Section 11: Evaluation and Audit Alice Springs Water Tank.
