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

Reviewer comments

The government does provide this data on the web. It does specify when it was collected "Date du prélèvement" seems to be every few months, with every area on a different timeline. I couldn't find downloaded bulk data anywhere but they have it in a digital format.
