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


Russia is a huge country and water quality is responsibility of regional governments. Thats why there is no centralized service or dataset for this type of data.

Reviewer comments

Changed to unsure. The data is collected at the local level and there are national ministries that are supposed to monitor water quality both drinking and for the ecosystems. Hoowever, can't find data.
