The DWQT manual is for WASH implementers interested in doing drinking water quality testing as part of the implementation, monitoring or evaluation of household water treatment and safe storage (HWTS) projects.
Among the updates, the manual has been broadened to include drinking water quality testing for small-scale community water systems (in addition to HWTS). The updates also address unique conditions in different regions, featuring customized country fact sheets. The manual now features an expanded water sampling section, including step-by-step instructions, illustrations and guidance on how to sample different HWT technologies.
