Recent years have seen significant developments in wastewater microbiology and in the application of population dynamics of mixed cultures to the design, control and operation of biological wastewater treatment systems. This attracted over 300 delegates to Berkeley for a high-quality programme, from which 97 papers have been selected for these proceedings. They cover a broad range of topics dealing with the microbiology of activated sludge and biofilms, including sessions on Microthrix parvicella, activated sludge microbiology and modelling, filamentous microorganisms, biopolymers, biochemistry, genetic methods, activated sludge foaming, and nutrient removal. There was particular interest in the use of genetic methods in determining the nature and distribution of microorganisms in activated sludge. New work on filamentous microorganisms causing hulking and foaming and on methods for solving these solids separation problems was also featured. These Proceedings highlighted some of the latest research in biological wastewater treatment processes. They will prove highly useful to microbiologists, environmental engineers, wastewater treatment plant operators and other specialists interested in biological wastewater treatment and water pollution control.
