The primary objective of this study was to develop techniques to reduce or eliminate THM in finished water without compromising the microbiological quality of the water. To this end a prototype rapid mixing system was employed and a number of alternative disinfection systems investigated. From these data both a general predictive model was developed and the role of algae and humic acids as THM precursors was evaluated.
