Contamination (Water)

Impairment of the quality of water sources by sewage, industrial waste, or other matters to a degree which creates a hazard to public health. Also, the degradation of the natural quality of water as a result of man’s activities. There is no implication of any specific limits, since the degree of permissible contamination depends upon the intended end use, or uses, of the water.
