I'm wondering, if the EDC such as bisphenol A, was chlorinated during the water treatment process, is the toxicity of formed disinfection by-products (DBPs) from EDCs smaller than the EDCs itself?

Many studies have been conducted on the DBP formation potential of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC), however, the toxicity comparison (before and after the chlorination process) was not comprehensive and limited.

Depends on several factors. If BPA is not decomposed, some of the mono, di, tri chlorinated BPAs even tightly bound to the receptors and act as secondary estrogens.
