Trihalomethanes represent between 5 & 20% of the total chlorinated products formed during the chlorination process in water treatment. Trihalomethanes are carcinogenic in nature and consequently their presence in drinking water has raised much concern both at national and international levels. The water quality data was collecte for Mumbai water supply for the concentrations of individual species of Trihalomethanes, chloroform, bromodichloromethan and bromoform in finished water at the outlet of treatment process and master balancing reservoir. A multiple regrassion model for chloroform formation with respect to pH, turbidity and total organic carbon was generated for predicting trihalomethane in the finished water at the outlet before laving the treatment plant for the consumers using the data of Panjrapur, Bhandup, Tulsiand and Verar treatment plants. In general this model was found to give acceptable fits.
