There are no dedicated department(s) nor ministry found from the official website Government of Timor-Leste http://timor-leste.gov.tl/?lang=en nor from the list of directories in the the official website Ministry of State Administration http://www.estatal.gov.tl/English/Directorates/Director_main.html that would cover the water quality at national level for Timor-Leste.

Can't find evidence of water quality data being collected, or who is in charge of monitoring water. http://apps.searo.who.int/PDS_DOCS/B4636.pdf
