A method for determining the trihalomethane formation potential (THMFP) in soil is shown based on a simulating examination of halogenating reaction of THM precurors in raw waters from soils under the similar conditions as in water purification processes. The design of experimental conditions (such as water/soil ratio, shaking time, chlorine dose etc.) is discussed. The selected test conditions are as follows: soils passed through a 0.25 mm sieve, shaking time of 4 h, pH controlled at 7.0 ± 0.1, chlorine dose of 8 mg/L, reaction temperature of 20°C, reaction time of 24 h.
