The motivation for this Nationwide Disinfection By-product (DBP) Occurrence Study was two-fold: First, more than 500 DBPs have been reported in the literature, yet there is almost no quantitative occurrence information for most. As a result, there is significant uncertainty over the identity and levels of DBPs that people are exposed to in their drinking water. Second, only a limited number of DBPs have been studied for adverse health effects. So, it is not known whether other DBPs (besides the few that are currently regulated) pose a risk to human health. To determine whether other DBPs pose an adverse health risk, more comprehensive quantitative occurrence and toxicity data are needed.
