This paper is primarily concerned with the significance of tests of various types of waters for mixing and curing concrete and makes no attempt to include the effect of quantity of mixing water. Almost all natural waters, fresh waters, and waters treated for municipal use are satisfactory as mixing water for concrete if they have no pronounced odor or taste. Because of this very little attention is usually given to the water used in concrete, a practice that is in contrast to the frequent checking of the cement and aggregate components of the concrete mix.
