This result is in agreement with and explains the extremely high amount of ammonium nitrogen found in this area, since Nitrosomonadaceae, including the genus Nitrosomonas, is one of the groups responsible for oxidising ammonia to nitrite.
Nitrosomonas bacteria colonize the system and metabolize the toxic ammonia to produce nitrites (NO[2-]).
The optimal concentration for nitrification is 6 mg/L for Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter (Meiklejohn 1957).
