Engineering Performance Solutions (EPS) is opening its doors to help drinking waterutilities maintain important Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) health standards. According to EPA standards, when chlorine is used as a disinfectant in water treatment, it reacts with the natural organic matter in the water to form harmful by-products. When consumed, these disinfection by-products (or DBPs) have been linked to increased risks for cancer. EPS offers full water quality evaluations to drinking water utilities that will analyze DBP content in water and provide a customized evaluation for proper mitigation.
