This guide is designed to help staff who undertake surveillance and monitoring of water supplies in developing countries. It provides simple information on how data may be collected and explains the use of equipment and inspection techniques. It also provides example forms that can be easily photocopied, guidance on how monitoring data can be used to improve water supplies and water handling, and how reporting of information can be used to initiate dialogue with communities.

The guide was developed with support from the Department for International Development (DFID) (Project no: R6874), and the World Health Organization.
