To date the principal concern of the disinfection of potable water has centered on the formation of halogenated organic reaction products and the adverse health effects that these products may have. However, an additional area for concern relating to water disinfection is the potential for in vivo production of halogenated organic reaction products resulting from the direct action of residual chlorine with endogeneous organic material.
