“Sustainable Safe Drinking Water Supply and Environmental Hygiene for all”
WATER QUALITY MONITORING AND SURVEILLANCE UNDER NRDWP
Recognizing the importance and urgency of addressing drinking water quality problems in the country, the Govt. of India is addressing the problem in an ambitious way, especially with the ultimate objective of institutionalizing community participation in all rural habitations in water quality monitoring and surveillance. The initiative includes steps for tackling water quality problems from two pronged approach: 20% of the annual NRDWP funds is earmarked for tackling water quality problems in the villages, and 3% for Water Quality Monitoring & Surveillance (WQMS) to ensure quality of water under which village level functionaries are trained on water quality aspects-sampling, testing and monitoring to ensure safe drinking water at all times.
The emphasis of WQMS is on regular testing and documentation of test results which are correlated with the health status of the inhabitants so as to ensure reduction and control of water borne diseases which are easily preventable through consumption of safe drinking water. Normally water samples are tested twice in a year for Bacteriological and once for Chemical contamination. Results are submitted online on the Ministry of Drinking Water & Sanitation official website through IMIS on regular basis.
List of District Water Testing Laboratories in Nagaland
Some simple instructions to be followed while collecting water samples:
While collecting a sample from the distribution system (well/stream/lake/pond/water tanks etc) handle it carefully so that it does not deteriorate or get contaminated during its transport to the laboratory. Before filling the container, rinse it two or three times with the water being collected.
Make detailed record of every sample collected and identify each contained by attaching a tag or label. Record information like date, time and location, etc.
Samples should be submitted to the nearest District Laboratory within 24hrs from the time of collection of samples. Normally a 1-litre sample would be sufficient for most physical and chemical tests.
