Turbidity – What is it?
Turbidity is a principal physical characteristic of water and is an expression of the optical property that causes light to be scattered and absorbed by particles and molecules rather than transmitted in straight lines through a water sample. It is caused by suspended matter or impurities that interfere with the clarity of the water. Turbidity is a regulated parameter to ensure safe drinking water and public health.
