During the course of the development of an analytical method for the determination of volatile organic solvents in water, it was observed that chloroform and other trihalogenated methanes consistently occur in drinking waters. Water supplies originating from both surface and ground water sources contain these compounds. Investigations reported here show that these compounds result from the water treatment practice of chlorination. They further show that drinking waters having surface water as their source contained higher concentrations of these compounds than those having ground water as their source. The maximum concentrations found were: chloroform - 150 micrograms/1, bromodichloromethane - 20 micrograms/1, and dibromochloromethane - 2 micrograms/1. Application of the method to a sewage treatment plant influent and effluent showed the presence of several other chlorinated aliphatic and aromatic compounds.
