Gomez-Alvarez, V., K. A. Schrantz, J. G. Pressman, G. E. Speitel, AND D. G. Wahman. Pyrosequencing Analysis of Bench-Scale Nitrifying BiofiltersRemoving Trihalomethanes. ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING SCIENCE. Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., Larchmont, NY, 30(9):582-588, (2013).
The bacterial biofilm communities in four nitrifying biofilters degrading regulated drinking water trihalomethanes were characterized by 454 pyrosequencing. The three most abundant phylotypes based on total diversity were Nitrosomonas (70%), Nitrobacter (14%), and Chitinophagaceae (9.5%), and their relative abundance significantly changed spatially within a biofilter.
To investigate the bacterial and archaeal communities in nitrifying biofilters removing trihalomethanes.
