Air Pollution Control Problems in Municipal Drinking Water Systems

Drinking Water SystemsIn some parts of the United States, groundwater used by municipalities and private wells contains hydrogen sulfide (H2S), a chemical compound that gives water a foul, “rotten egg” taste and smell. H2S occurs naturally in groundwater, where sandstone, shale, decaying organic material, or sulfur-reducing bacteria, combine to generate hydrogen sulfide gas, a colorless, flammable, and highly dangerous gas.

Detecting H2S in Municipal Drinking Water

The average person can smell and taste H2S concentrations as low as 0.5 mg per liter of water. According to the 10 States Standards, water systems with more than 0.3 mg of H2S per liter need to be treated with some kind of aeration process. Furthermore, water with more than 1 mg of H2S per liter can corrode water distribution systems and cause water to be unfit for drinking and food preparation.
