The variation of assimilable organic carbon(AOC) concentration at each condition of ozonation was investigated using a model water and drinking water resource. AOC concentration of model raw water and drinking water resource tended to increase at low ozone dose. The maximum AOC concentration was detected when the residual ozone begin to be measured. Also, the AOC concentration increase at pH 8 compared to both pH 6 and 7 while that for pH 9 decreased rapidly. The removal characteristics of trihalomethane formation potential(THMFP) by ozonation was also investigated. Unlike the trend of AOC, the THMFP concentration never increased by ozonation but decreased even at low ozone dosage. From these results, the ozone dosage would be effective to simultaneously decrease both AOC and THMFP.
