Taste is seldom listed as a permit requirement, but if it is, there are three methods of determination: • Flavor threshold test • Flavor rating assessment • Flavor profile analysis The Flavor Threshold Test is similar to the odor test and is the greatest dilution of a sample using pure water which yields a perceptible taste. The Flavor Rating Assessment is a scale for rating a drinking water as acceptable or not. The Flavor Profile Analysis is a comparison between a wastewater taste and that of a documented sensory quality judged acceptable by trained testers.
