Abstract : Water is the basic need for any life on earth. The process of purification mainly with chlorine, for suiting it to human needs increases its hazardous characteristics due to formation of by-products when chlorine reacts with natural organic matter. Trihalomethane is one such by-product which is hazardous to human and animals consuming such water. Trihalomethanes are commonly formed as the by-product such as bromodichloro methane, di-chlorobromo methane, bromoform and chloroform. This paper discusses the factors affecting the formation of Trihalomethane and different technologies available to reduce the formation of Trihalomethane.
