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 are several institutions monitoring water quality. VSIA "Latvijas Vides, ģeoloģijas un meteoroloģijas centrs" ( gathers most of the data: There is no protocol for data to be updated on weekly basis. Some of the chemicals for example "fecal coliform" only is tested if there is a request for it.
