The reclaimed water containing high salinity, great amounts of organic matters and high nutrients can easily lead to growth of biofilms in reclaimed water distribution systems (RWDSs). The microbes colonize the cement surface and microbial metabolites can cause cement biodeterioration. To understand the effect of microbial involvement in the degradation, this study investigated the transformation characteristics of cement-mortar lining and microbial biomass in the simulated RWDS for 1 year by X-ray diffractometer (XRD), X-Ray Fluorescenc (XRF), Heterophic bacteria count (HPC) and DAPI staining. Microbial metabolites were analyzed by GC/MS. The result shows that the carbonation reaction took place in the surface of the eroded cement-mortar lining where the content of CaCO3 was continuously increasing while the content of hydrated compounds were decreasing. The depositing layer of CaSO4·2H2O, CaAl2Si2O8·4H2O and Mg4Al2(OH)14·3H2O on the lining surface were formed by minerals such as Ca, Si, Al and Mg lost from the degraded hydrated compounds. Microbial biomass in the RWDS has maintained an increasing trend during the study. The main microbial metabolites of the biofilm on the cement surface are fatty acids, amino acids, and carbohydrate.
