The report summarizes results or studies of the formation of halogenated organics in chlorinated cooling waters at the Allen, Kingston, and Shawnee Steam Plants from June through December 1979. The data indicate that low levels (generally <20 ppb) of some halogenated organic compounds are formed during power plant chlorination. The chlorine dosage appears to be directly related to the level of the halogenated organics identified in the condenser cooling water system. There is no clearcut pattern that definitely supports any particular relationship between precursors (e.g., amino acid) and halogenated organic compounds. Precursors show consistent measurements above the detection limit of the analysis techniques. Bromide, ammonia, color, and fulvic acid concentrations at the Allen Plant were clearly higher than those at the other two plants. The average humic acid concentration was similar at all plants. A temporal trend was also apparent. The amino acid data showed consistent measurement below the detection limit of the analysis techniques. The data displayed no apparent temporal trends and no obvious tendency toward one class or structural type of amino acid.
