Chlorine – Range (0.00-0.70 mg/L) (0.0-3.5 mg/L)
The chlorination of water supplies and polluted waters is used mainly to destroy or deactivate disease-producing micro-organisms. It also serves to improve the quality of drinking waters, as chlorine reacts with ammonia, iron, manganese, sulfide and some organic substances.Nevertheless, high amounts of chlorine will produce adverse effects, like formation of compounds which are potentially carcinogenic (e.g. chloroform) or harmful to aquatic life (e.g. chloramines). Thus it is essential to control that the proper amount of chlorine has been added in order to fulfill the primary purpose of disinfecting and to minimize any adverse effects.
