A National Survey of TOC Trends in Relation to Watershed Characteristics and DBP Formation Potential

The primary goals of this project involving drinking water treatment will be:

To establish a national database for DBP precurors and NOM (via TOC as a surrogate) in US raw drinking waters.

2. To provide information to water quality managers on watershed management practices that can be beneficial or detrimental  to DBP and BDOM contro.
3. To provide a framework for those managers to develop their own watershed models and management strategies.

Principle Researchers: Alison Boutin; Paula Rees; Dave Reckhow; Greg Devine
