Application of trihalomethane formation potential to evaluation of drinking water treatment efficiency

By Barbora Halešová


The aim of bachelor thesis was to develop a literature search for the potential creation of oftrihalomethanes (THMs FP) as indicators of water quality in surface water treatment. The THM FP test was monitorated to evaluate the effectiveness of current technological methods of treatment of natural water with special consideration of water with increased content of humic substances. The attention was focused on comparison of the THM FP values with the normally applicable water quality parameters; it means the concentration of dissoluble organic carbon (DOC), UV254, CODMn, CODCr. The obtained evidence suggests that THM FP test allows sensitively assess water quality in term of content of chemically and biologically easily biodegradable organic substances. The potential of THM formation has been proved as a valuable tool for quantify non-specific organic contaminants in treated water, which can usefully complete previously used criteria for assessing quality of treated water
