Excerpt: The chlorinated organic compounds formed during water disinfection are largely the result of the interaction of chlorine with humic substances. Humic substances form in natural waters from the slow decomposition of lignins and other phenolic plant constituents. Combined with the metabolites from bacterial degradation of carbohydrates and proteins, they comprise a complex substrate for the action of chlorine that does not readily yield to precise characterization. Some of the major classes of compounds generated from humics during the disinfection process, for example, the trihalomethanes (I,%) and chlorophenols (31, have, for some time, been an established focus of concern in drinking water health studies. More recently, attention has centered on the mutagenic activity associated with water chlorination (4-6).
