Data, measured at the water source, on the quality of water is essential for both the delivery of services and the prevention of diseases. The Index either looks at the quality of designated drinking water sources, or of environmental water sources (if drinking water data is not available). See our methodology for more information. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data should be available on level of the following chemicals by water source.
|Publicly available||No||The data is available for the Environment http://environment.data.gov.uk/water-quality/view/landing but does not contain all the parameters.|
|In an open and machine-readable format|
|Collected by government||Yes|
|collector_name||Drinking Water Inspectorate; Environment Agency|
The original submission was rejected because not all the parameters were available Total Dissolved Solids and Fecal Coliform were not being collected or presented. From the original submission: "This submission needs careful consideration on review, as the scores for the above answers as based mainly on Environment Agency's Water Quality Archive, which only covers England, and may not adequately reflect the gaps in geographic coverage. Although the release of EA's Water Quality Archive represents progress since last year, availability of open data on water quality in Britain remains generally poor."

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
