Many drinking water utilities have recently changed or are considering changing their disinfection practice from chlorine to some alternative. Because changes are being made without evaluating the chemical effect, this study evaluated four parallel streams dosed with four disinfectants: chlorine, monochloramine, chlorine dioxide, and ozone. These streams along with a fifth parallel stream without disinfection (control) were passed through both sand and granular activated carbon.
