Abstract

Identifies the types and quantities of wastewater-derived DBPs in various types of municipal drinking water sources influenced by municipal wastewater. Characterizes the DBP precursor material and resulting types and quantities of DBPs expected in the finished water from source waters containing wastewater. Also identifies control and treatment strategies that can be used in both wastewater and water treatment to reduce or eliminate precursors and wastewater-derived DBPs. Research partner: USEPA.
