Abstract

RÉSUMÉ: La probabilité de déversement d'hydrocarbures dans les ressources en eau potable augmente au Canada. Les incidents de pipeline, les fuites de réservoirs de stockage ou de canalisations de distribution vers le réseau d’alimentation en eau peuvent causer des dommages considérables à la santé humaine. Les composants les plus hydrosolubles dans l'huile et les produits pétroliers, dont le benzène, le toluène, l'éthylbenzène et les xylènes (BTEX) peuvent provoquer des goûts et odeurs désagréables à faible concentration. L’enjeu avec ces composés est qu’il s’agit de composés cancérogènes et neurotoxiques dangereux pour la santé.----------ABSTRACT: The likelihood occurrence of the oil spill in drinking water resources is increasing in Canada. Pipeline incidents, leaks from storage tanks or distribution pipeline to the water infrastructure network can cause substantial harm to human health. The most water-soluble components in oil and petroleum products, specifically benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes (BTEX), can cause unpleasant taste and odor in low concentration. The concern with these compounds is that they are hazardous carcinogenic and neurotoxic compounds. Nowadays point-of-use (POU) devices have been increasingly used in the world.
