THE THREE TYPES OF CONTAMINATED WATER:
Category 1: “Clean Water”
Water from a clean source like a broken water line. If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3. Category 1 contaminated water may stem from a clean source such as broken water supply line or leaking faucet. If not treated rapidly, this water can turn into category 2 or 3, depending on certain factors: length of time, temperature, and contact with surrounding contaminants.
Category 2: “Gray Water”
- May contain bacteria and viruses
- Can quickly advance into category 3 if left untreated
Category 2 contaminated water may stem from source such as but not limited to: washing machine overflow; toilet overflow that may or may not contain urine, however not trace of feces are present; and/or dishwasher overflow. Category 2 water is unclean and may cause discomfort or illness.
Category 3: “Black Water”
May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
Category 3 contaminated water is entirely contaminated and may cause severe illness or death if ingested. Any and all contact should be avoided. Examples include but are not limited to: flooding from rivers, streams or canal, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilette that contain traces of feces, and/or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
