The main objective of this study was to develop and test a new field methodology in monitoring water pollution trends in a main open water distribution system. A water quality monitoring programme was initiated at four selected sites around Lahore, Pakistan. The sites were selected to permit the quality of water to be assessed before entering the city and after leaving it. The aim of this case-study to test the methodology was to identify the impact of Lahore's highly significant levels of municipal and industrial effluent. The project has demonstrated how the data can be collected and the benefiticial information that can be obtained for water resource managers when the data is processed and analyzed. Results from the first one year of monitoring are presented and give initial indication of pollution trends now affecting the area surrounding the city of Lahore.
