Good water or bad water?

My front yard slopes down from the street to our house and driveway. There's always a wet streak on the driveway where water from the yard is moving over the driveway to lower ground on the other side. I'm looking for a way to determine if the water is rain runoff or maybe is from our septic tank's field lines which are in the front yard. The amount of water increases after rain and slows down during drier times, but never completely stops. I've tried smelling the water and muddy dirt but I can't be sure one way or the other. Is there a cheap but reliable way of finding out what kind of water this is? Thanks.
