Contents Notes
Periodic taste and odor at the Cleveland, Ohio Crown Water Treatment Plant prompted investigation of the role microorganisms play in the problem. Fungi, bacteria, and algae collected near the plant intake were studied during June through August 1971. During the three months of sampling, no vertical distribution pattern was noted in quantitative analysis of the phytoplankton. A number of algae, reported to induce taste and odor in water, were identified. Whatever the source of these odors, they were not due to benthic or periphyton algae, but could have been associated with the phytoplankton community as the reported 'Lake Erie odor' coincided with phytoplankton increase.
