For the development of the Disinfectant/Disinfection Byproduct Rule, EPA wishes to compare human health risks from microbial infection with those from chemical disinfectants and their byproducts. EPA is approaching the problem with the use of computer models that simulate occurrence levels of pathogenic organisms in raw water, then simulate disinfection and production of disinfection byproducts. The microbial and chemical concentrations thus generated are then used to estimate potential health risks. The paper presents the methodology used for these simulations and estimations and discusses the assumptions and uncertainties inherent to the modeling process.
