Mishnah Parah 8:9: Blighted waters are invalid [for sanctification for the chatat ritual]. The following are blighted: salted and warm [waters]. Inconsistent waters are [also] invalid. The following are inconsistent waters: those which flow inconsistently once in seven [years]. Inconsistent waters in wartimes or years of drought are valid. Rabbi Yehuda invalidates [them].

הַמַּיִם הַמֻּכִּים, פְּסוּלִים. אֵלּוּ הֵן הַמֻּכִּים, הַמְּלוּחִים וְהַפּוֹשְׁרִים. הַמַּיִם הַמְכַזְּבִים, פְּסוּלִין. אֵלּוּ הֵם הַמַּיִם הַמְכַזְּבִים, הַמְכַזְּבִים אֶחָד בַּשָּׁבוּעַ. הַמְכַזְּבִים בְּפֻלְמְסָיוֹת וּבִשְׁנֵי בִצָּרוֹן, כְּשֵׁרִים. רַבִּי יְהוּדָה פוֹסֵל:

Mishnah Parah 8:10: Waters of Karmion and waters of Fugah [two of rivers in Israel] are invalid for they are marsh waters. The waters of the Jordan and waters of Yarmuch are invalid for they are mixed waters. And the following are mixed waters: one valid [water source] and one invalid which became mixed. Two valid [water sources] that became mixed are valid; Rabbi Yehuda invalidates [them].

מֵי קַרְמְיוֹן וּמֵי פוּגָה, פְּסוּלִין, מִפְּנֵי שֶׁהֵם מֵי בִצִּים. מֵי הַיַּרְדֵּן וּמֵי יַרְמוּךְ, פְּסוּלִים, מִפְּנֵי שֶׁהֵם מֵי תַעֲרֹבוֹת. וְאֵלוּ הֵן מֵי תַעֲרֹבוֹת, אֶחָד כָּשֵׁר וְאֶחָד פָּסוּל, שֶׁנִּתְעָרְבוּ. שְׁנֵיהֶן כְּשֵׁרִין וְנִתְעָרְבוּ, כְּשֵׁרִין. רַבִּי יְהוּדָה פוֹסֵל:
