National Priorities: Research on Disinfectants, Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), and Opportunistic Pathogens in Drinking Water Distribution Systems

Ensuring clean and safe drinking water is important for protecting human health and the environment. Opportunistic pathogen and disinfection by-product (DBP) contaminants in drinking water distribution systems remains a water quality issue that is prevalent across the Nation. More information is needed on the occurrence of DBPs and opportunistic pathogens, along with identifying environmental conditions and niches favorable to colonization, microbial growth, and propagation in drinking water distribution systems.
