Temperature, turbidity, color, taste, and odor make up the list of physi-cal water quality parameters. Since most ground water is colorless, odorless, and without specific taste, we are typically most concerned with its chemical and biologi-cal qualities.

Turbidity is a measure of the degree to which the water loses its transparency due to the presence of suspended particulates. The more total suspended solids in the water, the murkier it seems and the higher the turbidity.

Color in water is most often due to dissolved organic matter. It too makes the water unpleasant to drink, often contributes tastes and odors, and causes staining of surfaces and materials touched by the water. Surface water usually has some color, but in contrast to turbidity, color is sometimes found in well waters.

If the problem is simply one of suspended solids or turbidity, with no evidence of color, odor or taste, one of the mechanical filters may be used to remove the solid particles.

Depending on the specific circumstances, a large tank-type unit may be used to filter the entire water supply after the water leaves the pressure tank.

Affect Of Turbidity On Color Measurements Author: Kevin L. Goodner, Ph.D. Keywords: One of the problems measuring tea color is the interference of turbidity on absorbance readings.

While it is possible to filter water containing colloidal particles, and/or water that has a color to it, generally filtration is the last step in a process of treating this type of water.

Manganese also creates a strong metallic taste. Again iron and manganese containing water may red, brown or rusty color and copper containing water may green or blue; it can also change the color of the finished product, especially the water color (colorless) carbonated beverages.

The majority people are very sensitive to the odor of H2S gas. This treatment is used to control the acidity, alkalinity, or other water qualities which affect pipes and equipment used to transport water. By controlling these factors, the public water system can reduce the leaching of metals such as copper, iron, and zinc from pipes or fixtures, as well as the color and taste associated with these contaminants.
