The major aim of this project was to:

  • Undertake a comprehensive survey to identify the levels of nitrosamines in chloraminated drinking water supplies and chlorinated recycled water in Australia
  • Identify operational parameters that affect the formation of nitrosamines and recommend options to minimise formation of these disinfection by-products
  • Identify any issues with nitrosamines that may arise from blending recycled/raw waters as drinking water sources
  • Produce guidelines to assist water and recycled water treatment plants to minimise formation of nitrosamines.
