This ARC Linkage Project comprised studies of the occurrence and formation of several classes of nitrogenous disinfection by-products (N-DBPs), using water samples from a utility's drinking water treatment plants (DWTP). The studies focussed on N-DBP classes with high health risk or frequent occurrence reported in the literature. The N-DBP classes investigated in this project were the N-nitrosamines, halonitriles (HNs), halonitromethanes (HNMs) haloacetamides (HAAms), and organic chloramines.
