Tap Water is clean in Albania, but not when it leaves the well or directly into the taps. I recently did a survey on several villages in northern Albania and found that most people there regularly used underground tanks for their drinking water. The majority of the reservoirs and deep wells are in remote rural areas where little public infrastructure exists. Many residents rely on wells as their sole source of clean tap water.

Tap Water Quality standards in this country are relatively poor, especially in the rural areas where most people depend on wells for their drinking and cooking water. Out of every three people in the villages, two to three are expected to die of diseases related to unsafe water. Tap Water can be contaminated with heavy metals, bacteria, fungus, viruses, protozoa and other harmful microorganisms. When it comes out of the well or directly into the drinking water system, tap water poses the greatest health risks.

We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
