Geosmin contamination in water is a leading cause of odor related complaints to water companies in UK, tainting water with an earthy smell that is detectable by humans in quantities as low as 4 nanograms per liter. Current Geosmin detection methods depend on lab-based equipment, requiring samples to be collected and transported before Geosmin can be tested. This research presents a novel method for the detection of Geosmin in water using Microwave spectroscopy capable of detecting differentiating between four levels of Geosmin contamination: 5 ng/L, 10 ng/L, 0.5 mg/L and 1 mg/L as well as control samples. Frequencies within the 5.4 GHz to 5.9, 6.4 GHz to 6.5 GHz and 7.2 GHz to 7.5 GHz ranges showed significant separation between the sample classes
