What is the Turbidity in borehole water?
- The amount of small suspended solids particles that is present in the borehole water.
- It is measured by the amount of scattering and absorption of light rays caused by these particles.
- Turbidity blocks the light rays and makes the water see through.
- Turbidity is measured in nephelometric turbidity units (NTU).
- Drinking water should not exceed 0.5 NTU.
