Chloramine has often been used as a chlorine alternative for trihalomethane (THM) and haloacetic acid (HAA) control. However, nitrogenous disinfection byproduct (N-DBP) formation and nitrification in distribution have always been major concerns in chloramination practices. On Kinmen Island, the high organic nitrogen content in raw water may increase the nitrogenous DBP formation. Simulated ...

Disinfection byproducts from water treatment are suspected not only of being health hazards but even of being carcinogenic. Oxyhalides have therefore become the subject of many investigations and standards (e.g., EPA 300.1 Part B, EPA 317.0, EPA 326.0). Of primary concern is bromate, which forms from bromide during the ozonization of drinking water.
