Radioactive Water is not a chemical term though we use it in our comman language basically we used it for the Water that is Radioactively Contaminated.

Now , Radioactive Contamination is the deposition of / presence of radioactive substance with in liquid or solid or gas . Such contamination is hazardous for the nature because of radioactive decay of cantaminants which emits harmful ionising radiation such as alpaha or beta particles , gamma rays.


So, Radioactive Water is a Contaminated water which contaminated with radiation during the radioactivity ( Decomposition Process ) .
