Changes in methanogenic population levels were followed during startup of a full-scale, farm-based anaerobic
sequencing batch reactor (ASBR) and these changes were linked to operational and performance data. The ASBR was
inoculated with anaerobic digester sludge from a municipal wastewater treatment facility. During an acclimation period
of approximately 3 months, the ASBR content was diluted to maintain a total ammonia-N level of approximately
