Electrical conductivity measures the ability of water to conduct an electrical current. The higher the concentration of dissolved charged chemicals (also known as salts) in the water, the greater the electrical current that can be conducted. Charged ions include calcium, potassium, chloride and nitrates. A higher figure indicates pollution.
