Evaluating the Risk Tradeoffs of Drinking Water Disinfection

This report represents an exploratory effort to determine whether insights available from the social science literature on individual risks can be used to evaluate a risk-risk tradeoff. Specifically, the purpose of this project is to apply the result of recent economics and psychology studies on individuals and risk to the regulatory management problem posed by drinking water and disinfection.
