Effects of BZ in animals and humans were evaluated and served as the basis for the development of a water quality standard for field drinking water. BZ can reduce mental and physical performance at very low levels and hence is a substantial concern in drinking water. The 7-day standards for daily consumption of 5 and 15 liter water are 7 microgramliter and 2.33 microgramliter, respectively. Due to insufficient data in animals or man, a long-term drinking water standard could not be developed. Subject terms Field-water quality BZ 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate Health effects Health risks.
