What causes the odor in my water?

The odor is caused by the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas entrained in the groundwater. This is a naturally occurring phenomenon and does not pose any health risks. The hotter the water the stronger the odor, place a container in the refrigerator for drinking water and the odor will not be as noticeable.
