Evaluation of public health related quality aspects of materials, coming into contact with drinking water - odour and flavour tests in particular



Evaluation of public health related quality aspects of materials, coming into contact with drinking water - odour and flavour tests in particular



Water Science and Technology 40(6): 239-244



Objectionable odours and flavours in drinking water are a constant concern to consumers and public water suppliers. The organoleptic properties of drinking water can be naturally induced or man-made. In this paper characteristics and causes of odours and flavours are evaluated. Two methods for determining odour and flavour, in relation to the EC Directive 80/778, are described.
