Category 2, or gray water floods, originate from sources that contain a significant level of contamination and have the potential to cause illness to humans. These sources may be from overflows from dishwashers, washing machines, toilets or seepage from aquariums or waterbeds. It is important to remove the water as quickly as possible. Gray water that remains untreated several days may escalate to a category 3 (black water) flood. Black water floods are discussed in another Technical Guide.
