What Causes Smelly Water?


Smelly water can have a number of causes.  A molecule called geosmin is present in wet dirt and can cause a taste resembling soil.   Another cause can be bacteria.  Some bacteria produce smelly compounds that contain sulfur.  Of course, bacteria are not desirable in drinking water anyway, so a test for bacteria would always be wise.
