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 can also occur when reservoirs turn over in the spring and fall.
As a result municipalities are pressured into action. Many do not have a plan in place or budget to solve the problem.
