HWTS Sanitary Inspection Forms

Hello everyone, 

CAWST and University of Surrey are working to develop Household Water Treatment Sanitary Inspection forms that can be used by community representatives, health workers, water inspectors and humanitarian professionals. Your feedback will help us to ensure that these forms reflect your needs and experience. 

Please review the draft sanitary inspection forms for boiling and household slow sand filters. Your review of each form should take approximately 15 minutes.

Let us know if you have any questions.
