Abstract: Most chlorine decay models for the bulk phase in a water distribution system consider only chlorine concentration and time. Clark [1998. Chlorine demand and trihalomethane formation kinetics: a second-order model. J. Environ. Eng. 124(1), 16-24] first proposed a two-component second-order chlorine decay model based on the concept of competing reacting substances. A corrected mathematical formulation is developed and, because the recent findings suggested that not all natural organic matter (NOM) is involved in…
