Cl02 for disinfection of drinking water causing bad odor
In some water distribution systems we use Cl02 for disinfection. Drinking water users often complain about the odor of the water. Enclosed you can find an article from y. 1992, describing the situation, we could describe it as typical for our systems. The users in many cases describe the cat-urine odor, gasoline or organic solvent odor. The drinking water seems to be free of any volatile organic compounds that could cause it. The odor complaints are associated with new carpeting and redecorating the drinking water users’ homes. I am asking for help and more recent scientific explanations of the situation, the risk assessment for public health and looking for the appropriate solutions.
