Public water supply

"Public water supply" is water supplied by economic units engaged in collection, purification and distribution of water (including desalting of sea water to produce water as the principal product of interest, and excluding system operation for agricultural purposes and treatment of wastewater solely in order to prevent pollution). It corresponds to division 41 (NACE/ISIC) independently of the sector involved. Deliveries of water from one public supply undertaking to another are excluded.
