Tastes and odors are the leading cause of consumer complaints to water utilities. With this informative booklet, utilities can help their customers understand what can cause tastes and odors in tap water and why tastes and odors do not necessarily indicate a problem with the water.
Customers learn how water utilities use both laboratory testing and human taste-testers to know when something is wrong and determine what is causing the taste or odor. The booklet also explains the basic water treatment process to educate consumers on how utilities remove contaminants to make safe, great-tasting, drinking water.
