Control of actinomycete scum on aeration basins and clarifiers

Journal Water Pollution Control Federation 58(10): 972-977
Control of actinomycete scum on aeration basins and clarifiers
The causes and effects of scum formation associated with the growth of actinomycetes on aeration basins and clarifiers are reviewed. The actinomycetes, usually Nocardia, form a viscous brown scum which covers the surface of the tanks, reduces effluent quality, and causes odour problems. They were usually highly branched, though a non-branching, rod-shaped form also produced scum.
