Abstract The study was directed toward a fundamental problem of water resources management--matching the control of water quality against public acceptance of the water. Commonly used systems for measuring turbidity, color, and odor were identified and their reliability tested; combinations of turbidity, color, and odor values were related to public acceptability of water, throughout the full range of acceptability. Acceptability percentages were obtained from a total of 540 raters, and mapped for each of 125 combinations of turbidity, color, and odor values. The end product was a set of charts that can be used to obtain the water acceptability associated with any combination of color, turbidity, and odor. (Author)
