AWWA-64386 WSO: Disinfection By-products DVD


Disinfection is essential in the battle against waterborne disease; however disinfectants can also create unwanted by-products. These disinfection by-products or DBPs are a concern because they can potentially cause long term health issues. This creates a tough balancing act for utilities: protecting the public from waterborne disease while minimizing the occurrence and impact of DBPs. 

WSO: Disinfection By-products DVD covers the types of disinfectants used in water treatment, how disinfection by-products form and strategies to control DBPs including guidelines set by the USEPA through the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection By-products Rules.
