Influence of Phosphate on bacterial Growth in Water Systems
ISBN: 1 84057 091 1
Phosphate dosing is increasingly being used as a means of reducing plumbosolvancy in the UK. Reviews the literature of the impact of phosphate dosing, gives a theoretical assessment of whether there is a limiting factor on the growth of microorganisms and uses UK data to determine changes after addition of phosphorus. Estimates, from a desk study, the amount of additional phosphate discharged to the environment and its possible effects relative to other inputs.
