Water quality is a relative term—not a clearly defined, single set of guidelines applicable in all circumstances. Water that is of acceptable quality for irrigating a field of soybeans is not necessarily safe, or palatable for drinking. Before water quality can be assessed the intended use must be known and an acceptable range of standards must be set. In a sense, water quality can be thought of as water suitability.
