Abstract

Two issues should be clearly and strictly separated from each other when considering the quality of a water source.
  1. 1.

    Natural water quality: water characteristics as affected by natural conditions.

     
  2. 2.

    Water quality as affected by human activities: changes in the original water qualities due to the human activities of urbanization, industrialization, agriculture and the building of structures.
