What is meant by "water quality?"
Water quality describes the condition of water; determined by gathering information on chemical, physical and biological characteristics, usually for its suitability for drinking, irrigation, bathing and effluent purposes. Safe water should contain no chemical or radioactive substances, be free from disease-causing organisms and be stable in terms of corrosion and scaling.
