A population-based case-control study of bladder cancer and drinking water disinfection methods was conducted during 1990-1991 in Colorado.
Surface water in Colorado has historically been disinfected with chlorine (chlorination) or with a combination of chlorine and ammonia (chloramination).
A total of 327 histologically verified bladder cancer cases were frequency matched by age and sex to 261 other-cancer controls.
Subjects were interviewed by telephone about residential and water source histories.
This information was linked to data from water utility and Colorado Department of Health records to create a drinking water exposure profile.
