Halacha - Mikvaot
Submitted by Adi Salama  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is any natural body of water kosher for a lady to tovel in? Are there any special halahot or practical rules to be aware of when using such a place to tovel in as oppose to a regular mikveh?
Answer: Not necessarily. For example, a lake filled primarily with rainwater with an outlet is flowing non-spring water and is pasul because of zochalim. The Halachos of mikvaos are very complicated and it is advisable to only use a mikva under reliable supervision.
