The present recommended limit for iron in water, 0.3 mg/l (ppm), is based on taste and appearance rather than on any detrimental health effect. Water with an excess of iron may have a metallic taste and an offensive odor. It may also cause red, brown, or yellow staining and clogging in household fixtures such as bathtubs and sinks.
