The presence of taste and odour (T&O) is a growing concern for the water industry due to negative associations with unsafe drinking water. Although consumers primarily judge water quality by its aesthetic properties, T&O compounds are usually present in trace concentrations. This project investigated current complaint management processes and evaluated analytical techniques for detecting T&O compounds.
