Data, measured at the water source, on the quality of water is essential for both the delivery of services and the prevention of diseases. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data should be available on level of the following chemicals by water source and be updated at least weekly:

  • fecal coliform
  • arsenic
  • fluoride levels
  • nitrates
  • TDS (Total dissolved solids)

Data Location


There is a government platform of Water Quality which shows every sanitary control, but it does not include information about fecal coliform, arsenic, fluoride levels, nitrates nor TDS (Total dissolved solids)
