Abstract Finished water from ten utilities was studied to determine the extent of occurrence of byproducts of disinfection with chlorine. Free chlorine was used at some point in the treatment process at each of these locations. GC/MS spectra of components of extracts from these utilities were compared with spectra in a data base of over seven hundred spectra previously generated from composite work of earlier representative studies. Six compounds were found in all ten extracts. Twelve compounds were found in relatively large quantities at most locations. These twelve appear to account for between 30 and 60 percent of the measured total organic halogen. About 200 total compounds were found cumulatively in the samples from the 10 utilities.
