"Bromine as a drinking water disinfectant"

Bromine, chlorine, iodine, and fluorine belong to the halogen group of elements. All of the halogens share the common property of being oxidants with seven electrons in their outer shell. The halogen with the strongest oxidative power is fluorine, followed by chlorine, bromine, and iodine. Their reactivities are directly correlated with their electronegativities, which are as follows (based on the Pauling nomenclature of electronegativity values):

fluorine (3.98) > chlorine (3.16) > bromine (2.96) > iodine (2.66)

Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP) "Potable Water"

VSP Requirement : Ensure that the halogenation device provides continuous halogenation of the potable water distribution system and maintains a free residual halogen of 0.2 mg/L (ppm) and 5.0 mg/L (ppm) throughout the distribution system.
