In this study, we investigated the use of ultrafiltration (UF) combined with adsorption on powdered activated carbon (PAC) for the removal of ammonia nitrogen. This system was able to remove more than 80% ammonia nitrogen. The aim of this study was to identify bacterial populations in integrated PAC/UF system by analyzing 16S rRNA-based clone libraries. The results from this study further improve our understanding of the molecular diversity and bacterial population dynamics of drinking water microbial communities.
