Water Quality 0% open


What data is expected?

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.

  • Fecal coliform
  • Arsenic
  • Fluoride levels
  • Nitrates
  • Total Dissolved Solids
  • Data per water source
  • Available for entire country

"Drinking water companies must monitor the quality of the drinking water they provide to ensure that it complies with the quality standards set out in the Drinking Water Decree. They report their results to the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT)" None of these reports are posted on any of the websites.
