Explanation: also "wastewater". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wastewater
"Any water that has been adversely affected in quality by anthropogenic influence. It comprises liquid waste discharged by domestic residences, commercial properties, industry, and/or agriculture and can encompass a wide range of potential contaminants and concentrations. In the most common usage, it refers to the municipal wastewater that contains a broad spectrum of contaminants resulting from the mixing of wastewaters from different sources".
you can also say "sewage", but in common parlance it has come to mean "wastewater that is contaminated with feces or urine".
