Soil infiltration treatment (SIT) is ineffective to treat ammonium wastewaters of total nitrogen (TN)>100mgl-1. This study applied a novel two-stage SIT process for effective TN removal from wastewaters of TN>100mgl-1 and of chemical oxygen demand (COD)/TN ratio of 3.2-8.6. The wastewater was first fed into the soil column (stage 1) at hydraulic loading rate (HLR) of 0.06m3m-2d-1 for COD removal and total phosphorus (TP) immobilization. Then the effluent from stage 1 was fed individually into four soil columns (stage 2) at 0.02m3m-2d-1 of HLR with different proportions of raw wastewater as additional carbon source. Over the one-year field test, balanced nitrification and denitrification in the two-stage SIT revealed excellent TN removal (>90%) from the tested wastewaters. ? 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
