|Toelichting (Engels)||After investigators in the Netherlands and elsewhere in 1974 demonstrated that trihalomethanes (THM) can be formed during the chlorination of water, the Netherlands Water Works and KIWA performed many investigations in this area. A first inventory of available knowledge was made in 1978 by the KIWA ad hoc study group on "Chlorine". This inventory led to more detailed investigations, coordinated by the Committee on Side Effects of Chlorination. This report, prepared by the Comrnittee, intends to provide a survey of the results obtained since 1978. In most cases, the presentation of results obtained by the Netherlands Water Works and KIWA is taken as sufficient. When necessary, information is taken from the foreign literature. This pertains principally to the toxicologic aspects of disinfectants and the use of alternative disinfectants.|
