The influence of pre-treatment on biomat development in soil treatment units

Abstract:

Soil treatment units (STUs) receiving effluent from on-site wastewater treatment systems (OWTSs) rely on the gradual development of a microbial biomat/biozone at the infiltrative surface for optimal effluent distribution and pollutant attenuation. Here, we present the first direct measurement of gradual biomat development in the field in STU trenches receiving either primary (PE) or secondary treated effluent (SE) under identical environmental, hydrological and subsoil conditions. Two domesti...
