Key Organism Groups to Monitor
- Ammonia Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB) & Nitrite Oxidizing Bacteria (NOB)
- Denitrifying bacteria
- Phosphorus Accumulating Organisms (PAO) and Glycogen Accumulating Organisms (GAO)
- Filamentous bacteria - filaments are favored by many of the conditions in BNR operations and should be monitored for overgrowth.
For ease or reading, the MCA findings are reported in a summary table.
