Every year we get a few calls about a fungus in the wastewater treatment process. It happens when a wastewater plant receives high BOD operates below pH of 7 for an elongated period of time. If left untreated the fungus will get thicker and make it impossible to settle or dewater.
Aquafix advises applying VitaStim Sludge Reducer, Qwik-Zyme L, and Boost N Lock to the head of the plant. This combination will out-compete the fungi, it generally takes two to three weeks to rid the system.
