A systematic study of disinfection byproduct (DBP) formation from dissolved organic matter (DOM) of six southwestern water samples, three of which were collected during climatic events was performed. DOM was evaluated in its natural state in whole water samples and in a fractionated state where the DOM was isolated through concentration and resin fractionation. Study included evaluation of DBP formation at 1 hour and 7 days during a DBP formation potential test to elucidate the rate of DOM reactivity. Additionally, fractionated DOM was isolated in a manner such that mathematical reconstruction of whole water DBP formation was possible using the results of individual DOM fraction DBP formation potential tests.
