Abstract from DBPedia
    Water quality refers to the chemical, physical, biological, and radiological characteristics of water. It is a measure of the condition of water relative to the requirements of one or more biotic species, or to any human need or purpose. It is most frequently used by reference to a set of standards against which compliance, generally achieved through treatment of the water, can be assessed. The most common standards used to assess water quality relate to health of ecosystems, safety of human contact, and drinking water.

    水質(すいしつ、英語: water quality)は物理的、化学的、生物的な水の性質を示す指標である。水質は地球上の水循環や、当地での地形・地質条件、および人間活動の影響を受けているが、水質の分析は、水文学における野外調査のうち化学的な手法として挙げられ、水文環境の状況把握の上で必要となる。
