A novel biological oxidation filtration treatment process was evaluated for removal of ammonia from a California groundwater source. In addition to ammonia, this groundwater had other contaminants such as iron, manganese, methane, hydrogen sulfide odor, color, high organic carbon, etc. As such, more conventional treatment processes such as breakpoint chlorination were deemed infeasible, and biological treatment was the preferred treatment alternative.
