Abstract
In this volume, the authors attempt to bring together information developed over the past 6 years, on all aspects of trihalomethanes as they relate to drinking water. Section I summarizes with references to the primary literature the discovery of the trihalomethane problem, health and regulatory information. Sections II-V also summarizes the literature regarding key background information necessary for an understanding of approaches to initiating control measures and evaluation of their degree of success. Sections VI-XI attempt to be more complete treatments of their subjects including some previously unpublished in-house USEPA - Drinking Water Research Division (DWRD) research results, and selected references to the primary literature, sufficient to describe the state-of-the-art knowledge of trihalomethane treatment techniques bacteriologic considerations and economic impact of trihalomethane control strategies. Although the authors and contributors realize that research is continuing on this subject and therefore, new data will be forthcoming, sufficient new information is available at this time to warrant this update of the 'Interim Treatment Guide for the Control of Chloroform and Other Trihalomethanes,' June 1976 (Unpublished).
