Abstract
The evident trend in the taste and odor quality of raw water is downward. Estimates of stream pollution in terms of population equivalents show an ever-upward trend. Taste and odor loads may be expected to increase more rapidly than loads in terms of 'population equivalents' because of many factors. Subject to relief by self-purification in streams, organic pollutants of surface waters present an additive assault on water quality, and each tangible organic source is a factor in determining the odor of the resulting water. These topics are discussed.
