The mechanisms and pathways by which nitrogen in its various forms is removed from waste stabilisation ponds (WSP) have been a subject of much debate for wastewater scientists and engineers. Nitrogen removal in WSP has been attributed to ammonia volatilisation and sedimentation of organic nitrogen via biological uptake. However, researchers have found it difficult to determine whether sedimentation or volatilisation is the dominant mechanism for nitrogen removal because of the very complex interactions in the biochemical pathways involved, although it was thought that volatilisation may dominate during the warm summer months and deposition during the winter.
