Mutagenicity of organic extracts from Canadian drinking water in the Salmonella/mammalian-microsome assay.


Organic extracts of chlorinated Ontario drinking water samples have been found to induce mutation and lethality in the Salmonella/mammalian-microsome histadine reversion assay. Collections of water were made at water treatment plants in five municipalities in June 1978. To determine the reproducibility of the positive mutagenic effects found, a second… (More)
