Algae and Drinking Water Update

Trihalomethane (THM) Fact Sheet

Chlorination has made the U.S. water supply safe from illness produced by bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Fortunately, chlorine disinfection has almost completely eliminated risks of deadly waterborne diseases such as typhoid fever, cholera, and dysentery. Additionally chlorination has been a important tool in the battle against algae related toxins. However, the chlorination process also produces byproducts. These disinfection byproducts include a group of chemicals known as Trihalomethanes (THMs). THMs include four chemicals: chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dribromochloromethane, and bromoform.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated public water systems check for THMs on a regular basis and that the level of THMs in the water should be less than 80 parts per billion (ppb). This is a change for THMs in drinking water; previously the maximum allowable amount was 100 ppb.
