We consider a time optimal control problem arisen from the optimal management of a bioreactor devoted to the treatment of eutrophicated water. We formulate this realistic problem as a state-control constrained time optimal control problem. After analyzing the state system (a complex system of coupled partial differential equations with non-smooth coefficients for advection-diffusion-reaction with Michaelis-Menten kinetics, modelling the eutrophication processes) we demonstrate the existence of, at least, an optimal solution. Then we present a detailed derivation of a first order optimality condition (involving the corresponding adjoint systems) characterizing these optimal solutions. Finally, a numerical example is shown.
