Bromodichloromethane and chloroform are two trihalomethanes (THMs) for which parametric values have been proposed for the first time. The present volume, which has been developed in very close cooperation with the Directorate General for Environment, Nuclear Safety and Civil Protection (DG XI) of the European Commission and the members of the Commission I of EUREAU, provides:

- The THMs occurrence in the European drinking waters, the risk evaluation and the toxicity of THMs;
- The exposure levels to single THMs in water leaving work and in the distribution network;
- The evolution in the distribution network of chloroform and dichlorobromomethane (DCBM) in selected case studies through the European Union;
- The relationship between maximum and average chloroform and DCBM concentrations in water leaving work and in the distribution network.
