Turbidity refers to the degree to which the water in lakes and other bodies becomes less transparent. This happens when different particles settle at the bottom of water bodies. This makes the water impure and this water can cause many diseases.

High levels of turbidity are harmful mainly to the plants and fish which are there under the water. The particles under the water absorb heat and make the water warm, hence causing some fish to die. Other than that, these particles also make the process of photosynthesis slow and in this way the oxygen can’t reach the plants underneath the water
