The behavior pattern of the content of disinfection by-products in samples from the clean water reservoir of the Dnieper water supply plant as a function of the total organic carbon concentration, ultraviolet absorption at λ = 254 nm, and the specific ultraviolet absorption has been investigated. It was established that with due regard for specific peculiarities of the Dnieper water composition in different year seasons, the total organic carbon concentration was the most expedient for a potential-determining indicator of trihalomethanes formation.
