Turbidity is the measure of relative clarity of a liquid. It is an optical characteristic of water  and is a measurement of the amount of light that is scattered by material in the water when a light is shined through the water sample. The higher the intensity of scattered light the higher the turbidity.

Materials that causes water to be turbid include clay, silt, algae, dissolved colored organic compounds.  Turbidity makes water cloudy or opaque. Excessive turbidity, or cloudiness, in drinking water is aesthetically unappealing, and may also represent a health concern. Turbidity can provide food and shelter for pathogens. If not removed, the causes of high turbidity can promote regrowth of pathogens in the water, leading to waterborne disease outbreaks, which have caused significant cases of intestinal sickness throughout the world. Fortunately, traditional water treatment processes have the ability to effectively remove turbidity when operated properly.

For Turbidity Removal, the water is allowed to settle, and is then followed by filtration to remove any suspended floc. In some cases the water must ge gently stirred or agitated in order for the floc to form. A very effective method of Turbidity Removal is with reverse osmosis or ultrafiltration membrane systems.
