The paper will discuss the mutagenicity of water samples following several alternative treatment processes and possible correlations with the presence of disinfection by-products. The studies include both pilot-scale and small treatment plants. Samples were obtained in: Evansville, Indiana, where ozone and chlorine dioxide disinfection were used; Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, where the water was treated with chlorine, monochloramine, or ozone; and Buchanan, West Virginia and Lake Havasu, California, where chlorine was used after ultrafiltration. The water samples were concentrated by XAD resin adsorption/ethyl acetate elution prior to testing for mutagenicity in the Ames Salmonella/microsome assay.
