Cryptosporidium oocysts are resistant to chlorination but ozonation has been shown to be effective against the oocysts. However, ozone can react with bromide to form bromate, a suspected carcinogen. The need to balance ozone applications for microbial disinfection against potential bromate formation is discussed. The use of models to calculate bromate formation is considered.
