Public Notification

Chlorine

  • Canada posts chlorine document for consultation; the guideline technical document: Chlorine in Drinking Water
    Commentary: Readers may want to check out this Health Canada document to see what it does include, since it "...does not propose a guideline for chlorine in drinking water... It does not review the benefits or the processes of chlorination, nor does it assess the health risks related to exposure to by-products formed as a result of the chlorination process."  It might be compared to the information developed for USEPA's promulgation of the MDRL for chlorine as part of the DBP rules.
