Microbial communities in wastewater play an important role in treatment, and especially microbial community composition and changes have great influence on biological treatment. In these cases, monitoring and evaluating the changes with practical methods becomes important. Ecoplates may be an effective and quick method for assessing microbial activity. Therefore, we observed, with Ecoplates, the microbial community function of different operational units from wastewater treatment plants.
