Abstract: From November 2009 until April 2010 a water quality study was conducted in four districts of Timor-Leste namely Lautem, Covalima, Alieu and Dili. The objective was to gather information necessary for finalization of the Water Quality Monitoring guidelines including development of Water Quality Standards. The study was very useful in understanding the water quality situation in the country and in selecting the parameters that need regular monitoring. Several physical, chemical and bacteriological parameters were tested under the study. The results clearly indicate the importance of including bacteriological testing of the water in the national water quality monitoring system.
