Nitrification in Monochloramine-Treated Water Systems


Courtesy of LuminUltra Technologies Ltd.

A Water utility based int the Midwest USA uses Monochloramine treatment to treat their two surface water treatment plants to disinfect raw water and establish residual disinfectant prior to discharge to their distribution system. 

Like most water utilities that use Monocholoramines, a common area of concern is nitrification. Residual ammonia from chloramines can serve as a food source for nitrifying bacteria with the resulting elevated microbial population causing premature loss of cholorine residual among other things.
