Maximizing nitrogen removal from stormwater using bioretention

Principal Investigator(s) 

Realizing significant nitrogen removal from stormwater will likely require the presence of an anoxic zone in the stormwater control measure. This project evaluates denitrification using wood chips in an anoxic treatment column. Denitrification rates are coupled with flow rates to evaluate efficiency and possible design improvements. More information about this project is available online.
