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.
Only EA's water data is published in CSV format. Water quality reports for the entire British territory are only available as PDF. Data from Environment Agency's Water Quality Archive is re-usable under the Open Government Licence, as are the annual reports from the drinking water regulators. The most recent public data available from Environment Agency's Water Quality Archive is for 2015. Data can be downloaded at once, but only for English territory. Water quality reports are available at: https://www.dwi.gov.uk/about/annual-report/2016/index.html https://environment.data.gov.uk/water-quality/view/landing
