The study determined the influence of bromide ion concentrations on the relative amounts of nonpurgeable organic chlorine and bromine and chlorine-substituted and bromine-substituted trihalomethanes formed during the free chlorination of drinking water over various reaction times and pH values. Measurements of this type are important because bromide ion concentrations are not lowered by conventional drinking water treatment processes, bromide ion is present in many groundwaters, bromide ion may increase the production of trihalomethanes, and the health effects of bromine-substituted compounds may be different from those of their chlorine-substituted counterparts.
