As the quality of our water deteriorates, we expect that people will more and more need to/want to test the quality of their drinking and other water.

The list below represents a compilation of information on water testing resources in various parts of India. The list uploaded here has been prepared from the information collected and compiled by NEERI, Nagpur and AIIH & PH, Kolkata with the professional support of a senior consultant and in collaboration with WHO India Country Office, New Delhi.

The information submitted by the participating laboratories in this directory has not been further verified. The information contained in the directory summarizes the information supplied by the participating laboratories during the period December 2004 to April 2005. Access here: Water Quality Directory

The list below was generated primarily by people sending their information to us, and is a good example of user-generated knowledge. If even more people can contribute information on testing labs in their area, we can add to the listing on this. Please add a comment to this post with the name and contact information of any testing lab you know.

Further, if you have used a testing lab from the list below, if you add a note on your experience to validate the listing it will be even more useful. These are simple yet useful things individuals can do for the water cause. Currently we have information for several major cities and some smaller towns KARNATAKA
