Water Sediment and Particulates in natural water normally consists of erosion silts and organic matter – plankton.

The term “erosion silts” represents the loose sedimentary material, rock particles, mud, or clay in water.

The term “organic matter – plankton” represents the particulate matter derived from the breakdown of organisms or detritus in water.
