In this webinar, David Reckhow, A.P. Black award winner in 2019, will recap his ACE19 presentation on disinfection by-products. The presentation will be followed up by an interactive Q&A session. This webinar is part of a research series sponsored by AWWA Water Science and the Joint Section Research Committee.
