The 'clean water' field survey CHALLENGE
663 million people in the world do not have access to safe water.
(WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) Report 2015 update)
every day volunteers search for water issues in villages and settlements.
Since 1981 wateraid have reached 25 million people with safe water.
Surveying water quality in villages and settlements
Part of the charities work involves volunteers investigating water quality in remote villages and settlements, not just once but regularly to understand the overall level of water access, quality and sanitation.
This work is vital. Our volunteers are often local people and members of the community.
Fitting time in for regular and frequent water site testing can be difficult.
Currently this is a manual task with paper and complex forms. It's not surprising that the field data received is inconsistent and often poor quality.
Missing odd readings and not returning complete data can often mean its hard to get a true picture of the real situation.
