Drinking Water - Other Toxicological Studies

Treatment Chemicals as Sources of Contamination of Drinking Water

Reference: 96/DW/05/11
ISBN: 1 84057 057 1
Published Date: 17/04/2002

Over recent years, there has been concern over an apparent increase in the prevalence of male reproductive disorders, which may be associated with oestrogenic compounds in the environment. In order to assess the likelihood that oestrogenic compounds may be present in drinking water, a range of such compounds was exposed to water treatment processes under laboratory conditions. The compounds assessed were steroids and nonylphenols. These were exposed to chlorination, ozonation, coagulation and powdered activated carbon (PAC). This report presents the results of the laboratory study and provides an indication of the likely effects of water treatment on these compounds.
