In this section, compile the necessary information on water purification and try to find answers to the following (sample) questions:
Where to get further information: If you lack information on this issues, you may want to sit together with the respective stakeholders (water users and water suppliers) and carry out laboratory analyses of the respective waters.
Interlinkages: How is water purification linked to other areas in the water and nutrient loop? The approach used for purification depends strongly on the form of water contamination that prevails: Are there primarily organic pollutants (e.g. from agriculture and households), is turbidity an issue or are there chemical pollutants? What are the sources of contamination?

There are several problems with these kinds of water purification:
Too many WASH and WRM projects fail prematurely or are left unused because they are poorly planned, don’t adequately meet user needs, or are weakened by corruption and integrity issues.
IQC management is a participatory, step-by-step process to help improve Integrity, manage Quality, and ensure Compliance of small-scale WASH and WRM projects.
