The objectives of this research were to demonstrate the long-term capability of a nonsteady-state biofilm to allow efficient removal of a trace-level substrate; develop and evaluate a mathematical model that predicts the transient growth, decay, and substrate utilization of the biofilm; and investigate the role of nitrification and bacterial adaptation in reducing the rate of heterotrophic biofilm decay.
