Water Turbidity - Dangers of Cloudy River and Drinking Water (Video)

Water turbidity is an important measuring unit to determine water quality and describes the degree of water cloudiness.

Turbidity is caused by a huge number of small particles that are suspended in water and invisible to the human eye. While bigger particles are settling down rapidly, small particles – also known as colloids – are settling down very slowly or not at all. 

Turbidity in rivers or lakes is often caused by human activities like construction, mining and agriculture. Storm water runoff after a rainfall can wash up sediments from urbanized areas, industries and farmland.
