Total organic carbon (TOC) has become an important water quality analysis tool for drinking water plants in recent years due to its link to disinfection byproducts (DBPs). TOC alone is not harmful, but upon its reaction with a disinfectant can produce harmful byproducts. However, TOC’s relevance in drinking water applications is not purely for regulatory compliance of DBP limits or meeting TOC monitoring requirements. TOC is also an important parameter for optimizing and thereby reducing costs associated with a treatment process, and is an indicator of the health and safety of source water and distribution system water quality. TOC has a range of applicability at a drinking water plant, and therefore any drinking water utility — large or small — can measure TOC in their laboratory or online in their treatment process.
