Contamination of Drinking Water – Water Quality Instruments

People need access to safe drinking water to live a healthy life. Unfortunately, waterborne disease is a major cause of death in many parts of the world. The safety of drinking water is judged by both national and international standards.

Drinking water comes from two sources ─ surface waters and groundwater. Groundwater is typically more resistant to pollution than surface waters. While all water contains natural contaminants, much also contains man-man pollutants, some of which are more harmful than others. Some of these include discharge from industries and sewage treatment plants, run-off from agricultural lands and hard surfaces, and chemical spills.

When people drink contaminated water that has not been properly treated, the impact can range greatly from no consequences, to causing serious illness and even death. Common symptoms include diarrhea, nausea, cramps, and vomiting.
