Taste & Odor

In surface water supplies, algae, natural organic material, or man-made impurities may impart unpleasant tastes and odors (off-flavors) to the water.  When detected, the customer may question the water quality.  Water treatment facilities often use a combination of treatments to solve taste and odor problems, including permanganate oxidation as an important first step.
