fresh water plumbing line, a roof top, or a flooded sink or plumbing
receptacle. Gray water contamination: is a release of water from a
dirtier source such as a washing machine, shower pan, or garbage
disposal. Black water contamination: Usually these type of moisture
intrusions originate from a toilet or sewer line and contains the a high
concentration of bacteria/mold within the water.
