ABSTRACT Response surface methodology (RSM) with central composite design (CCD) was used to monitor and optimize species-specific interaction of trihalomethane (THM) precursors in a scaled-up distribution network (DN). Independent variables such as applied chlorine (Cl2), contact time (t), humic acid (HA) and bromide ions (Br−) were analyzed using full factorial CCD. Analysis of variance revealed a good agreement between experimental data and proposed a two-factor interaction model (p = .04, R2…

Comparison of chlorination and chloramination practices on microbial inactivation efficiencies within a scaled‐up water distribution network using central composite design
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

Trihalomethanes Concentration in Different Components of WaterTreatment Plant and Water Distribution System in the North of Iran
Since the surface water is one of the main potable water resources, the usage of chlorine as a disinfectant has increased. Consequently the production rate of disinfection by-products (DBPs) such as
Factors Affecting the Formation of Organic By-Products During Water Chlorination: A Bench-Scale Study
The formation of chlorination by-products (CBPs) was investigated through bench-scale chlorination experiments with river water. The compounds selected for analysis belonged to the groups of
Laboratory-scale chlorination to estimate the levels of halogenated DBPs in full-scale distribution systems
Results of this research suggest that the use of experimental data to predict halogenated DBP levels in full-scale distribution systems – for operational, regulatory and epidemiological purposes – must be done with caution.
[Effects of bromide and ferric ions on formation of tri-halomethanes during disinfection of drinking water by chlorine].
The results showed that bromide in this reaction system not only contributed to the increase of brominated species, but also the total tri-halomethanes, which can result in the biggest challenge on carcinogenicity risk in alkalescent environment.
