Water quality standards are used to classify water into different categories based on their physical, chemical and organic composition. In South Africa, SANS 241:2105 specifies the limits and associated risks of water intended for drinking. The standard classifies water based on microbiological, physical, aesthetic and chemical determinands. Water that complies to this standard is considered safe for lifetime consumption.
