Session on Monitoring Water Quality: What do we test for? How do we test? Why?
WASRAG Water Summit V
June 21, 2013
by Ryan Rowe
Summary: This presentation aims to raise awareness of the importance of monitoring water quality in projects implemented by Rotarians around the world. To start off, I will explain why water supply projects alone may not entirely address the issue of improving access to safe drinking-water, creating the need to monitor water quality. Then, I will briefly discuss a new resource for organisations concerned about poor quality drinking-water in the home, which is a good guide with considerations about what to test for and how. Finally, I will outline some considerations and practices with respect to how to go about monitoring water quality. References for all data cited in this presentation are listed on the last two slides.
