THM formation in potable waters with reference to related variables and health data bases.
Biennial Conference of IAWPRC. Kyoto (JPN), 1990/07/29.
Drinking-water samples were selected country-wide over a period of 2 years and analysed for THM, pH, DOC, bromide and residual chlorine.
The average THM concentration was 45 mug/. At 75 per cent of the sites chloroform was predominant.
THM values were related to the measured variables.
Standardised mortality rates were calculated for two causes of cancer deaths possibly related to water intake, i.e. carcinoma of the digestive organs and peritoneum and carcinoma of the genito-urinary organs.
No relationship between THM levels and mortality from these 2 cancers was observed.
