In light of increasing concern for the organic content of potable water supplies and the production of potentially toxic chlorinated organic products, a better understanding of the character of organics removed by commonly used treatment processes is desirable. A variety of chemical and physical characterization techniques were used to identify the changes in organic character resulting from chemical treatments of a Mississippi River water sample.
