Water for Construction

Water used for all construction works like masonry work, making concrete, mortar, bricks, or for other plain or reinforced general construction, should be clean and free from objectionable quantities of suspended materials, vegetables, or organic impurities like alkalis, salts, and other deleterious substances.

Because such deleterious materials cause efflorescence or are likely to interfere with setting of mortar or prove harmful to construction works. Clear and potable water is considered quite satisfactory for all purposes.
 
NOTE: In any case, salty water must not be used for construction works.
