Research Concludes Disinfection By-Product Removal Will Be Major Impact of Safe Drinking Water Act on Selected N.C. Utilities

Record #:
In a project sponsored by the North Carolina Urban Water Consortium, university investigators have concluded that the urban water utilities they studied may need to improve removal of disinfection by-products from drinking water to meet requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1986. They also conclude that requirements for removal of synthetic organic chemicals and volatile organic chemicals will probably not have a major impact on the utilities.
