Abstract

Utilities have installed and modified treatment practices to control the formation of regulated DBPs (e.g., THMs). In this study, DBPFP tests were conducted on samples from different points in the surveyed plants. These tests not only showed the removal or destruction of DBP precursors with various unit processes, but the contribution of certain processes to increasing DBPFP (e.g., use of certain polymers increasing NDMAFP; ozonation increasing TCNMFP). Table 4 shows a summary of the impact of treatment processes on DBP precursors. In order to balance the control of regulated DBPs with that of emerging DBPs of health concern, utilities will need to optimize a series of various unit processes to minimize the formation of a wide range of DBPs.
