Abstract

The goal of our project was to assess the quality, monitoring, and treatment methods of drinking water in rural villages of Himachal Pradesh. To realize this goal we assessed local perceptions of water, investigated the relationship between water quality and public health, and measured the level of contamination. We found high bacteriological contamination in untreated natural water sources. The project resulted in recommendations to improve the current water quality testing program and to promote public awareness regarding drinking water quality.
