Dibromoacetic acid

Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2go

NOTE: Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2go purchases water from Brunswick County Water System which is required to test for dibromoacetic acid. Sample information shown below was taken by Brunswick County Water System.

Dibromoacetic acid, one of the group of five haloacetic acids regulated by federal standards, is formed when chlorine or other disinfectants are used to treat drinking water. Haloacetic acids and other disinfection byproducts increase the risk of cancer and may cause problems during pregnancy. Click here to read more about disinfection byproducts.
