Bromodichloromethane

East Fork SUD

NOTE: East Fork SUD purchases water from North Texas Municipal Water District Wylie Water Treatment Plant which is required to test for bromodichloromethane. Sample information shown below was taken by North Texas Municipal Water District Wylie Water Treatment Plant.

Bromodichloromethane, one of the total trihalomethanes (TTHMs), is formed when chlorine or other disinfectants are used to treat drinking water. Bromodichloromethane and other disinfection byproducts increase the risk of cancer and may cause problems during pregnancy. Click here to read more about disinfection byproducts.

State and national drinking water standards and health guidelines

EWG Health Guideline 0.06 ppb

The EWG Health Guideline of 0.06 ppb for bromodichloromethane was proposed in 2018 by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment as a one-in-a-million lifetime risk of cancer. Values greater than one-in-a-million cancer risk level can result in increased cancer cases above one in a million people.
