Development of predictive geosmin models in northern Colorado lakes, reservoirs, and rivers
Geosmin is a taste and odor (T&O) compound that is naturally occurring, produced by bacteria, and released into drinking water source waters. Geosmin in many parts of the country is a seasonal issue, so drinking water providers often look for temporary solutions to the T&O caused by geosmin. Being able to predict when geosmin will be an issue is vital if drinking water providers are going to succeed in using temporary mitigation methods. Therefore research is being performed to develop predictive models. This study is a broad sampling of Northern Colorado water bodies investigating the role of ...
