    The quality of water suitable for use in different industrial processes ranges widely. As a result, only broad criteria have been or should be established by state and interstate agencies for water for industrial operations. Industry itself has created relatively few criteria for the appearance properties, taste and odor, electrical conductivity (as a measure of dissolved salts), dissolved oxygen, and pH required for process operations where water of a particular quality is needed. The criteria determining the quality of a specific source of water will tend to become those for municipal water supply and recreation. Possible use of all or part of a river for transportation of wastes to a treatment plant should not, however, be arbitrarily eliminated from consideration.
