Where Black Water Comes From
Contaminated water, otherwise known as black water, is any water that may have come in contact with fecal matter. This may include
- Sewer water
- Water from fields
- Toilet backup
- River run off
Flooding falls into the black category because often there is no way to tell what it has come into contact with. In most cases, it is best to assume it has been contaminated and follow the proper sanitation procedures.
