Richardson, D. S. (n.d.). Identification of New Disinfection By-Products Formed by Alternative Disinfectants. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Purpose Trihalomethanes (THMs) and other halogenated by-products can be formed during chlorination of drinking water. Several drinking water treatment plants in the U.S. have altered their treatment methods and adopted alternative disinfectants to comply with an EPA regulation that limits levels of THMs in drinking water. The alternative disinfectants currently being used (including ozone, chloramine, and chlorine dioxide) are effective and do not produce significant levels of THMs. However, limited information exists concerning disinfection by-products (DBPs) that are produced from alternative disinfectants, resulting in significant uncertainty regarding human exposure to DBPs. These alternative disinfectants may produce compounds more or less harmful than those produced by chlorine. The purpose of this research is to identify unknown DBPs formed by alternative disinfectants and in combination with chlorine. This abstract presents a summary of all research NERL has conducted on DBPs from alternative disinfectants.
