Evaluation of total organic carbon removal and disinfection by-product control strategies. Assess., 190(7): 379. 40(9): 131-139. Monteith et al. There is extensive guidance available to help water utilities understand the mechanisms associated with biological filtration, as well as to identify and implement appropriate monitoring (Prévost et al., 2005; Juhna and Melin, 2006; Evans et al., 2013a, 2013b; Brown et al., 2016; Nyfennegger et al., 2016). Aqua, 53(2): 85-92. Hargesheimer, E., Conio, O. and Papovicova, J. Factors influencing the formation and relative distribution of haloacetic acids and trihalomethanes in drinking water. Developing a strong understanding of the source water is essential to ensure a reliable, robust and resilient treatment strategy is selected. MF and UF are referred to as low-pressure membranes and are used for particle/pathogen removal. (1999). COD: because COD measures oxidizable organic matter, a highly reactive source with 2 mg/L TOC and a less reactive source with 4 mg/L TOC can have comparable COD concentrations (Stoddart and Gagnon, 2014; Dabrowska, 2016). UV absorbance (in cm-1) = 2 - log10 of the UV transmittance (in %). Water Eng. Characterization of disinfection byproduct precursors based on hydrophobicity and molecular size. Water Works Assoc., 92(6): 44-54. Dai, X. and Hozalski, R.M. Multiple factors affect the biostability of distributed water: type and concentration of organic and inorganic nutrients, type and concentration of residual disinfectant, biofilms and sediments, and distribution system conditions (e.g., disinfectant residual decay, water temperature, residence time, hydraulic conditions, pipe material and diameter, pH, corrosion rate) (LeChevallier et al., 2015a; Prest et al., 2016). Water Research Foundation, Denver, Colorado. Four types of pressure-driven membranes are currently used in drinking water treatment: microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO). Croué, J.P., Lefebvre, E., Martin, B. and Legube, B. Hydrol., 173(1-4): 51-70. Am. The use of uniform formation conditions (Summers et al., 1996) enables the direct comparison of results to assess the effectiveness of various treatment options (AWWA, 2011a).

The particulate organic matter in soil serves as a lightweight, low density bulking agent, similar to a sponge. This guidance document was prepared in collaboration with the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water and reviews and assesses risks associated with the impact of NOM on drinking water treatment processes and the safety of drinking water. Water Supply, 1(1): 1-7. (1962). Cronan and Aiken, 1985; Dalva and Moore, 1991; Kalbitz et al., 2000, 2006. This approach results in six NOM fractions, as outlined in Table 3.
