How is compliance determined for DBPs?

Compliance for Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5) is determined with Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) using the calculated Locational Running Annual Average (LRAA). For an LRAA, an annual average is calculated at each monitoring site. MCLs for TTHM and HAA5 are 0.080 mg/L and 0.060 mg/L, respectively.
