H Solutions of model proteins were chlorinated and found 'to produce yields of trihalomethanes and total organic chloride comparable to a humic acid. The concentrations of proteins (total dissolved amino nitrogen) and algal counts in a lake water were measured from April to November of 1985. Concentrations ranged from 0.07 to 0.3 mg/L as N while copper sulfate was added to the lake for algae control. Increases in protein concentration correlated with algal blooms. When copper sulfate treatment… CONTINUE READING
