Project Description

This project developed an understanding of the occurrence of regulated and emerging disinfection by-products (DBPs) in drinking water in Southeast Queensland (SEQ). This was achieved through the characterisation of natural organic matter of several SEQ source waters and through exploring strategies for halide and organic matter DBPs precursor removal from water, and examining the effect of these removal strategies on DBPs formation.

Honours Thesis completed by Kalinda Watson in October 2014.
