Why is chlorine added to drinking water? Chlorine has been added to drinking water to get rid of harmful micro-organisms since the early s. If harmful bacteria, viruses or protozoa are distributed through a drinking water supply, a lot of people can get sick very Size: KB.
Increasing attention has been given to the treatment of livestock and poultry wastewater because of its high ammonium nitrogen (NH4+-N) content and low carbon/nitrogen ratio (C/N). Ceramic filter medium (CFM) and dewatered aluminum sludge (DAS), which are products from cast-off materials, are used as small-scale combined biological filters (CFM-DAS) for wastewater : Fuquan Peng, Yuexiang Gao, Xiang Zhu, Qingqing Pang, Longmian Wang, Wenwen Xu, Jianghua Yu, Pengchen. Analysis of Trihalomethanes in Drinking Water by Liquid/Liquid Extraction 1. Scope This method (1,2) is applicable only to the determination of four trihalomethanes, i.e., chloroform, brcmodichloromethane, chlorodibrcmomethane, and bromoform in finished drinking water, drinking water during intermediate stages of treatment, and the raw source water.

THMs are the byproducts of chlorination of water that contains natural organ - ic matter.A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) survey shows that THMs are present in most chlorinated water supplies. Even though they pose a less acute health risk than do.

Cometabolism of Trihalomethanes by Nitrifying Biofilters Under Drinking Water Treatment Plant Conditions EPA Grant Number: FP Title: Cometabolism of Trihalomethanes by Nitrifying Biofilters Under Drinking Water Treatment Plant Conditions Investigators: Wahman, David G.
Institution: The University of Texas at Austin. This research studied the feasibility of THM cometabolism in laboratory-scale biofilters under conditions that reflect drinking water treatment practice.
Initially, batch kinetic studies were conducted to determine whether nitrifying bacteria could reliably cometabolize all four THMs at a sufficient rate to make the process attractive to utilities. A kinetic model for THM cometabolism was incorporated into AQUASIM to describe biofilter performance under conditions where by-product toxicity is not a concern.
The model was used to estimate kinetic parameters for THM cometabolism and Cited by: The published report, Cometabolism of Trihalomethanes in Nitrifying Biofilters (F), is available from IWA Publishing at or is free to AwwaRF subscribers by calling ‐‐ or logging on to by: Demonstrates THM cometabolism in continuous-flow GAC biofilters receiving ammonia, monochloramine, and THMs in the influent.

Of particular interest is the observation that nitrifying bacteria can cometabolize chloroform at a reasonable rate ( to liter/mg/day). The premise of this research is that THM removal should be possible within drinking water treatment plants by introducing a biological treatment step based on THM cometabolism by nitrifying by: Nitrifying biofilters seeded with three different mixed-culture sources removed trichloromethane (TCM) and dibromochloromethane (DBCM) with removals reaching 18% for TCM and 75% for by: Nitrifying biofilters seeded with three different mixed-culture sources degraded trichloromethane (TCM) and dibromochloromethane (DBCM).
In addition, resuspended biofilm degraded TCM, bromododichloromethane (BDCM), DBCM, and tribromomethane (TBM) in backwash batch kinetic tests, demonstrating that the biofilters contained organisms capable of degrading the four regulated trihalomethanes.
Ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) in nitrifying biofilters degrading four regulated trihalomethanes-trichloromethane, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane, and tribromomethane-were related to Nitrosomonas oligotropha.

[Google Scholar] Cited by: Trihalomethanes: Health Information Summary Trihalomethanes (THMs) are a group of organic chemicals that often occur in drinking water as a result of chlorine treatment for disinfectant purposes and, therefore, are also known as "disinfection byproducts" or DBPs.
THMs are formed when chlorine reacts with naturally. Abstract. Chloroform is a volatile organic contaminate widely detected in groundwater, surface water and wastewater effluent, thus its fate in the natural treatment systems is of great importance to the environment and human’s : Yi Chen, Yue Wen, Qi Zhou, Jan Vymazal.
oligotrophais associated with chloraminated drinking water systems, and its presence in the biofilters might indicate that trihalomethane tolerance is another reason that this bacterium is dominant in chloraminated systems. No evidence indicates that trihalomethanes (THMs) support microbial growth, but previous research demonstrated that four regulated THMs—trichloromethane (TCM), bromodichloromethane (BDCM), dibromochloromethane (DBCM), and tribromomethane (TBM)—were cometabolized in Cited by: COMETABOLISM OF TRIHALOMETHANES BY NITRIFYING BIOFILTERS UNDER DRINKING WATER TREATMENT PLANT CONDITIONS Publication No._____ David Gerard Wahman, Ph.D.

Biofilm communities in four bench-scale nitrifying biofilters degrading drinking water-regulated trihalomethanes were analyzed by next-generation high-throughput pyrosequencing.
On average, the bacterial communities were dominated by Nitrosomonas(69%), Nitrobacter(14%), and Chitinophagaceae (9%) with the dominant bacterial operational taxonomic unit (OTU) related to the Cited by: 7.
Chloroform (CF) is largely produced by both anthropogenic and natural sources. It is detected in ground and surface water sources and it represents the most abundant halocarbon in the atmosphere.
Microbial CF degradation occurs under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Apart from a few reports describing the utilization of CF as a terminal electron acceptor during growth, CF Cited by: possibility of trihalomethane (THM) cometabolism in nitri-fying biofilters.
