CLASSIFICATION OF WATER POLLUTANTS The various types of water pollutants can be classified in to following major categories: 1) Organic pollutants, 2) Pathogens, 3) Nutrients and agriculture runoff, 4) Suspended solids and sediments, 5) Inorganic pollutants (salts and metals), 6) Thermal Pollution 7) Radioactive pollutants.
