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


Individual communes must control the quality of their drinking water by law, and are supposed to publish water quality bulletins; the actual level of openness varies vastly. In the best case, the website of the cummune contains a PDF that can be a couple of months old, and usually forbids reuse, e.g.

It is unknown whether all communes even digitalise their water quality bulletins.
