Various treatment technologies have proven effective in controlling halogenated disinfection by-products such as precursor removal and the use of alternative disinfectants. One of the most promising methods for halogenated by-product control includes removal of precursors before disinfection. Research studies in central Florida indicate that membranes are effective in removing halogenated by-product precursors from certain waters. Can membranes be used as effectively in other locations for most drinking waters so that they can be considered BAT for disinfection by-products. There are also other regulatory concerns where membranes can provide adequate treatment. Membranes can be used for removing inorganics and radionuclides. Also, with appropriate pilot-scale data, membranes could possibly be considered BAT for meeting the Surface Water Treatment Rule requirements.
