Smell of Fish in Drinking Water
A fish smell in your drinking water can come from a few different sources:
- Natural organic matter going through the typical process of decay.
- Sewage that is entering your water source.
- Chlorine when mixed with ammonia is used for treatment of wastewater and can result in a fishy odor.
- Cadmium can get into water supplies through commercial and industrial waste, fertilizers and sometimes deteriorating galvanized plumbing.
