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


The water quality data is currently not published at the national level. Besides, the current regulation only requires the Environment agency monitor and collect data on a monthly (at least) basis. So it does not meet the minimum criteria of the index

Reviewer comments

Approving submission, couldn't find data or reference to national body that monitors water quality like the comment said.
