THMs are chemicals which may be found in water treated with chlorine. The concentration of THMs in drinking water varies according to the level of organic material in the water, the amount of chlorine required to treat the water, and the temperature of the water that is being treated.
Some studies suggest a link between long term exposure to THMs (i.e. many years) and cancer and reproductive effects but the evidence is not conclusive.
THMs are classified as ‘possibly carcinogenic’ to humans.
Some water supplies have reported levels of THMs which are higher than the recommended levels.
