Abstract

The number of water refill depots in Pariaman increased in the last five years, and the evaluation of water quality examinations has not conducted already. This research used an observational method based on secondary data from the District Health Office between 2016 and 2018. The data are evaluated according to the eligibility, frequency of examination, chemical and bacteriology parameters determination, and compliance with regulations. These conditions were increased consecutively for three years. Besides, the inspection and evaluation are not scheduled-well, and it expenses the budget of Pariaman Government. Most depots have no initiative to do the test and spend some money on the test. Therefore, it is very important to conduct water quality depots in Kota Pariaman. It needs to be improved the quality and the quantity according to regulations. With the enactment of District Regulation, the Government of Pariaman can impose a penalty for depots.
