Prezonation of Algal Laden Waters
Trihalomethanes (THMs) are suspected carcinogens that are formed in the water
treatment process upon chlorination of THM precursor compounds. Organic materials
such as humic substances and algal biomass have been shown to be THM precursors.
This study examines the effect of ozone on these THM precursor compounds in waters
that have a high organic load due to the presence of an algal bloom.
