Can you taste pollution?



  1. 0 Votes

    Certain types of pollution can definitely give an unpleasant taste to water, especially if leaks from agricultural and industrial storage lagoons have gotten into the groundwater supply. Indoor pollution is sometimes nicknamed the “silent” killer, as things like carbon monoxide are odorless. However, taste and smell are closely linked, and there are days you can smell pollutants in the air, especially if they are petroleum or sulfur-based.

      Yikes, that is scary. I never really thought that I might be smelling pollution. I wonder if that is what makes some tap water taste bad (i.e., Los Angeles) while other tap water tastes great (i.e., San Francisco)?
