Taste and Odor
Taste and Odor events are a source of great concern for drinking water treatment plants. They generally occur unexpectedly in the summer when water temperatures and nutrient load create a perfect environment for growing blue-green algae that secrete a chemical known as geosmin. It has a very strong taste and smell that is often described as earthy, musty, dirt like or of dead fish. It also happens when the reservoirs turn over in the spring and fall.
As a result municipalities are pressured into action. The problem is many do not have a plan in place. Nor is there a budget to solve the problem.
