  • Abstract Chlorine is always used in disinfection process of water treatment plant (WTP) in Kaohsiung, and the major of disinfection by-products (DBPs) is THMs. Reaction of THMs producing were found in relation to lots of factors of water quality. Therefore we used SPSS to analysis the relation between water quality and THMs content for making prediction model of THMs formation in water distribution system in downtown Kaohsiung city. It is expected to estimate the concentration of THMs with a simple method, and to reduce THMs by controlling some items of water quality.
    While the variance of TOC value is low, we found that concentration of THMs is related to temperature, pH, and residual chlorine by regression method. In these items, residual chlorine had the highest correlation. While the variance of TOC value is high, the correlation between the three items and THMs is weaker than the front one. From this finding, TOC is best one fitting factor in prediction of THMs. In this study, we found that R-square value of Multivariate regression prediction is higher than the value of Univariate regression prediction probably for THMs producing is a complex reaction, so formation model was hard using only one item of water quality.
