Chlorination and dechlorination regulations
Several federal, state, county and local government organizations have set regulations for the amount of chlorine that can be discharged into the environment. Utility agencies are responsible for meeting these regulations.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

- Long-term: Chronic toxicity criterion for receiving bodies of water shall not exceed 0.01 mg/L (ppm).
