World Health Organization: Sampling from a Watercourse or Reservoir Mobile App
The safe quality of water supplied to communities is an important consideration in the protection of human health and well-being, it is not the only factor that affects consumers.
How does it work?
When water samples are collected for analysis, care should be taken to ensure that there is no external contamination of the samples. Unless valid samples are collected, the results of the subsequent analysis may be misleading. The World Health Organization: Sampling from a Watercourse or Reservoir mobile app provides a detailed list for taking water samples from a Watercourse or Reservoir.
This app provides guidelines for drinking-water quality and describes the methods employed in the surveillance of drinking-water quality in the light of the special problems of small-community supplies, particularly those of developing countries, and outlines the strategies necessary to ensure that surveillance is effective. It is also concerned with the linkage between surveillance and remedial action and with the form that remedial action should take.
