Color is an indication of the amounts of dissolved and suspended materials
present in water. Turbid and clear water can be colored. A reasonable color
determination can be made by holding a test tube full of the sample against a
white background. It is best to let the sample stand for a few minutes to allow
the solids to settle. Adjectives such as light, medium and dark can be used to
describe the color intensity along with descriptive color names.
