Russia is a huge country and water quality is responsibility of regional governments. Thats why there is no centralized service or dataset for this type of data.

Reviewer comments

Changed to unsure. The data is collected at the local level and there are national ministries that are supposed to monitor water quality both drinking and for the ecosystems. Hoowever, can't find data.
