Outbreaks of waterborne disease and chronic adverse health effects of disinfection by-products (DBPs) have generated potable water regulatory changes that have affected consumers, laboratories, and clinics nationwide. Existing and future regulations require numerous and better techniques for analysis of pathogens and DBPs, as well as improved water treatment. Membranes are the most versatile and promising technology for achieving higher-quality potable water. Clinical personnel will develop and provide analytic techniques to meet these challenges.
