Are Petroleum Odors in My Drinking Water or Well Water Unsafe?


Hi, I am Charlie Samardelis from Carroll Water Systems. I am an analytical chemist and a master water specialist.

Today, we’re here to talk about petroleum oil odors in your water. Obviously, that is a pretty scary factor for most folks smelling petroleum in their water.

There could be multiple reasons why that odor is there – there could be gasolene intrusions, oil intrusions – all different types of things that are coming into the groundwater.

It would be best if you have us out if you have those odors to at least test the waters so we can get an idea of what’s there and obviously promote some type of treatment that will fix it for you. It is very important that you address these issues because they are indeed health concerns.
