Disinfection practices reduce the incidence of water‐borne diseases but may result in formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in raw water that are reported to be carcinogenic. Central composite design (CCD) was employed in the present study for optimization of disinfectant dose and contact time with the rationale to evaluate if an optimal balance could be achieved between minimal DBPs formation and effective microbial inactivation with either free or combined chlorine in treated water…

Assessment, modeling and optimization of parameters affecting the formation of disinfection by-products in water
TLDR
Chlorine dose and total organic carbon (TOC) were proven to be the main factors affecting the formation of total chlorinated DBPs, while chlorine dose and bromide concentration were the main parameters affecting the total brominated THMs.
Incidence of chlorination by-products in an institutional drinking water distribution network, Islamabad, Pakistan, using response surface methodology
Trihalomethanes (THMs) are regulated disinfection by-products (DBPs), analyzed in drinking water due to their toxicological health effects. However, few data exist regarding the content of emerging

TLDR
Although pre-ozonation may increase the formation of trihaloacetaldehydes or selected HNMs during post-chlorination or chloramination, biofiltration may reduce the formation potential of these by-products, and optimization of the various treatment processes and disinfection scenarios can allow plants to control to varying degrees the formation.
Drinking Water Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) and Human Health Effects: Multidisciplinary Challenges and Opportunities.
TLDR
New approaches being taken by analytical chemists, engineers, toxicologists and epidemiologists to characterize theDBP classes driving disinfected water toxicity are discussed, and it is suggested that DBP exposure should be measured using other DBP classes in addition to THMs.
