This paper describes the origins of drinking water odors in water resource and its control. Odor in drinking water can originate from biological sources or processes, from contamination by synthetic chemicals, and from corrosion or as a result of water treatment (e.g., chlorination). Odor compound may also develop during storage and distribution due to microbial activity. The majority of water supply systems in Japan have a river or surface water as their water source. These rivers are generally subject to concerns for many stakeholders, with different perspectives, who are located in a rather limited area. This fact makes it unfeasible for water monitor the water quality at the water source on its own. The monitoring systems instead, should be implemented in cooperation with various concerned parties or through the organized working of a council that includes various members of the entire watershed. Some of the existing systems can be effectively used in this manner.
