Introduction to Drinking Water Quality Testing

Why do we test the quality of drinking water? How do we do that? Are there options available and what options should we choose? All of these questions are important when planning to assess drinking water quality testing. This module will explore factors such as budget, objectives, time, location, availability of resources, and staff capacity when planning a water quality testing project or adding water quality testing to your program implementation.
