Water can get contaminated very easily. Micro-organisms like bacteria and parasites, that make their way to water from faecal wastes, can pollute it. Industrial wastes are largely responsible for contaminating water with their harmful chemicals. Also, most fertilizers contain nitrate and render water absolutely unfit for drinking. To add to these, certain minerals like lead and mercury can adulterate water. Such minerals are either present underground or find its way into the soil because of improper disposal.

Contaminated water is harmful for one and all but for some it is exceptionally unsafe. For example, patients undergoing chemotherapy, transplants, pregnant women, children and infants, fall prey to the extreme effects of water contamination easily. Also, there are reports of widespread adulteration in bottled water as well.
