N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is known to be a much more potent carcinogen than the currently regulated disinfection by-products (e.g. trihalomethanes). There is a limited understanding of the spatial and temporal trends of the concentrations of NDMA and other nitrosamine compounds in treatment works and distribution systems. This study reports the findings of an ongoing survey of NDMA and seven other nitrosamines from six drinking water supply systems in England and Scotland that were identified as being probable to have elevated concentrations of these compounds.
