Whenever we turn on the tap or jump in the pool we always assume that if the water looks nice and clear then it should be safe. Unfortunately all water is contaminated to a degree but it is the level of contamination which can either make the water safe at one level, or be a health hazard at another. Just because water looks clean does not mean that it’s safe to drink or swim in. More and more countries around the world are coming to terms with what a precious resource fresh water is and are creating health and safety legislation to ensure it remains safe for all.
There are many diseases which can exist and spread rapidly in a water supply which are deadly to humans.
