Water Quality 0% open


What data is expected?

Data, measured at the water source, on the quality of water is essential for both the delivery of services and the prevention of diseases. The Index either looks at the quality of designated drinking water sources, or of environmental water sources (if drinking water data is not available). See our methodology for more information. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data should be available on level of the following chemicals by water source.

  • Fecal coliform
  • Arsenic
  • Fluoride levels
  • Nitrates
  • Total Dissolved Solids
  • Data per water source
  • Available for entire country

How open is the data?

Argentina did not provide all relevant water quality indicators within our assessment timeframe. Fecal Coliform, Arsenic, and Fluoride were missing. The data to be assessed were found at: After our review timeframe was over, Argentina added new water quality data. Now the Argentinian government publishes water quality data at: This data contains several water quality indicators (measured in many areas around the country). As the government states, the displayed water quality indicators can vary across areas. Quality indicators include temperature, pH, conductivity, among others. The data is openly licensed and up to date.
