This project established a decision-making tool to integrate all the various factors for controlling earthy/musty taste-and-odor (T&O) compounds (geosmin and MIB) into a reasonable and defensible treatment goal. The research also applied this process to other utility-specific T&O issues. The deliverables include a final report and Earthy/Musty Taste & Odor Decision Tool that will help utilities characterize their E/M T&O problems, identify reasonable goals for geosmin and MIB control, and develop alternative scenarios for meeting these goals. The Decision Tool is available as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet under Project Resources/Web Tools. Published in 2013.
