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

Comments

Unsure if data exists, but there is no information online as to the quality of the water. The authority that directly responsible for water and its quality is DOWASCO (Dominica Water and Sewerage company). The website is http://www.dowasco.dm/.

The only information about water quality can be found at the link: http://www.dowasco.dm/index.php/water-quality. Again not in the format that this survey requires.

Reviewer comments

Seems the Environmental Health Department is responsible for monitoring water quality http://health.gov.dm/index.php/departments

Can't find any information about this on the website or any reports.
