Launching a Scorecard to Monitor Water Quality at the Station Level in Ghana

By: Safe Water Network | Rabin Valluri | Joseph Owusu-Ansah | David Vordzorgbe


Safe Water Network teams in the US and Ghana developed and launched a Water Quality Scorecard as part of a comprehensive Water Quality Management Program. The Scorecard analyzes the parameters listed within Ghana’s National Drinking Water Quality Framework, specifically water station economics and the management of in-country testing and transport.

The new scorecard tracks water quality improvement and prompts improvements pertaining to quality and consistency. It has been a useful tool in evaluating microbial indicator organisms that are indigenous to Ghana. And the upgraded scorecard combines third-party water testing with station-level monitoring parameters for a more comprehensive analysis.
