This study aimed to investigate the concentrations of N-nitrosamines in chlorinated indoor pool water and to determine whether swimmers’ bodily inputs of organic and inorganic substances increase those concentrations. Three public indoor pools in Chuncheon, Korea were visited for the purposes of obtaining both source (chlorinated drinking water) and pool water samples and comparing their concentrations of six N-nitrosamines as well as certain water quality parameters. Three N-nitrosamines… CONTINUE READING
