The project first involved the selection of water sample sources according to set source and sample collection points throughout the Doti and Baitadi districts. The 50 samples were later analyzed through microbiological testing. Potential factors for contamination were identified and their relationship to contamination was assessed. Follow-up and proactive measures for the protection and treatment of drinking water were identified as well.
