Ozone (O(3)) and ozone/hydrogen peroxide (O(3)/H(2)O(2)) can be used in water treatment facilities to remove many organic micropollutants with taste, odor, and color implications. The effects of O(3) and O(3)/H(2)O(2) on the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in subsequent chlorination and chloramination processes, however, are not well determined. In this study, we compared the yields of a series of regulated and emerging DBPs during sequenced O(3)-Cl(2), O(3)/H(2)O(2)-Cl(2), O(3)-NH(2)Cl, and O(3)/H(2)O(2)-NH(2)Cl oxidation of 11 samples, each with different hydrophobicity, bromide concentration, soluble microbial products, and humic substances. For most water, pretreatment with O(3) and O(3)/H(2)O(2) increased the formation of chloral hydrate (CH), trichloronitromethane (TCNM) and haloketones (HKs) but lowered the yields of haloacetonitriles (HANs) during chlorination processes. Compared with O(3) alone, O(3)/H(2)O(2) in combination generated more CH and HKs during chlorination, and their extents of formation appeared to depend on the O(3) doses. In terms of chloramination, both O(3) and O(3)/H(2)O(2) reduced THM, HAA, and HAN formation significantly without increasing CH, TCNM, or HKs. These results suggest that O(3) or O(3)/H(2)O(2) pretreatments may provide some benefits for the chloramination process in controlling regulated and emerging DBPs in waters without high bromide content.
