Self-purification of water.--That the water of running streams and lakes is largely self-purifying has long been recognized. This self-purification occurs by sedimentation or the settling of solid matter and by oxidation, whereby in its movement the water comes in contact with oxygen, which oxidizes the organic matter; sunlight also destroys some bacteria.
