Abstract

The average bromide concentration obtained in a survey of 101 nationwide drinking water utilities was almost 100 μg/l. Whereas previous studies have targeted ozonation studies on waters containing high levels of bromide, a broad ozonation study herein illustrates that, under typical treatment conditions, a significant portion of utilities may exceed the proposed bromate MCL of 10 μg/l. A bromate prediction diagram has been developed to assist utilities in assessing the in potential for bromate formation.
