Wastewater Microorganism Database

Our wastewater microorganisms database is a guide to identify what operators are looking at under the microscope, what is causing it, and provide a course of treatment when needed. We will dive into the biological process and identify the positive and negative impacts these organisms can have on wastewater plants by providing in-depth knowledge of the wastewater treatment process.
