[edit] Contaminants in water?

Water can be contaminated with extracts or vampire blood and such, right?

Under what circumstances will the water be contaminated?

  • the water is taken from a tile with the contaminant on the floor?
  • the water is taken a tile with a contaminant on an adjacent wall?
  • the water is taken from a tile with no contaminants on any adjacent walls or floors, but contaminants on the floor of a lower tile in the reservoir?

Will the water be described any differently? I.e., "Water laced with forgotten beast extract", or will it still be described as just "Water"?

If contaminated water dries on an object, will the object still be contaminated? For example, if a roast gets a coating of contaminated water on it, will it be safe to eat after the water dries?

If a dwarf drinks from a waterskin coated in contaminated water, will they ingest the contaminated water?

If a dwarf drinks while their mouth is covered with a coating of contaminated water, or eats while their hands are coated with a covering of contaminated water, will they ingest the contaminated water?

What happens if contaminated water gets on a dwarf? Last time my dwarves walked through their contaminated dwarven bathtub, they got water on their mouth. Is this enough to infect them? It appears not, since most of my dwarves are fine and most of them walked through the contaminated bathtub. Maybe they only get sick if they walk through without shoes on.
