Category 3 (black water)
Grossly unsanitary. Described as water that results from a grossly unsanitary source or carries pathogenic (disease causing) agents. This could come from discharge from toilets that originate from beyond the toilet trap (sewer or septic systems), intrusions from the surface of ground water into the structure, an example being flood waters.
If you have had a water damage that meets this criteria prompt action needs to be taken.
