Chlorate Residuals

Chlorate Residuals

Chlorate is a natural break-down product of sodium hypochlorite and concentrations are higher in older batches of chemical especially if they are exposed to heat or contain metals. At present, any water service provider that measures chlorate concentrations must report them as an incident to DERM regardless of the concentration (because there is no specified guideline in the Australian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines).

qldwater has a technical working group reviewing current issues relevant to management of chlorate in drinking water supplies. Members requiring further information can contact us here.
