As the potential dangers of contamination were brought to the forefront of the water and sanitation sector, emphasis was placed on the need to conduct testing so as to ensure clean drinking water. This project involved conducting microbiological water quality tests from 50 samples taken in Doti and Banke.

IDS Nepal also conducted knowledge transfer of field-based testing to members of local NGOs so they could continue the testing on their own in the future.
