Prevention and Control of Nitrification in Drinking Water Distribution Systems Course Resources
This course specifically examines chloraminated drinking water facilities and utilities with high concentrations of ammonia in their water source that could cause nitrification.
Participants will learn the history of chloramination, the formation of chloramine and the basics of nitrification. Participants will also gain an understanding of the importance of monitoring for chemical surrogates to characterize their water and interpret the extent of nitrification in the system.
