Effects of Solute Transport Processes on In-Situ Denitrification for Nitrate Control in Ground Water
This paper discusses the effects of solute transport mechanisms on the effectiveness of biodenitrification in the subsurface environment. The only solute transport processes apparently...

Transport Models to Simulate Nitrate Contamination
Computer models can be used to simulate groundwater flow and contaminant transport in the vadose zone, the results of which can be used as input to simulate flow and transport in the saturated...

Nitrate in Rural Water Supplies in North Carolina
Over 9000 rural water supplies in North Carolina were analyzed for nitrate, chloride, electrical conductivity and pH. Data were collected on well characteristics and potential sources...

Influence of Soil and Sediment pH and Redox Conditions on Degradation of Toxic Organics
The presence of toxic organics in soil and sediments has raised concern over persistence and bioaccumulation. In the absence of oxygen, microbial degradation of toxic organics proceeds...

Nitrogen Discharge in Secondary Effluent and Its Effect on Nitrate in Groundwater

The Role of Nitrate in Biological Phosphorus Removal

Nitrate and Bromide Transport Through a Vadose Zone in New Jersey
Ongoing field experiments on monitoring transport of Sodium Nitrate and Potassium Bromide in the vadose zone over a shallow groundwater table in the coastal plains of New Jersey are discussed....

Managing Nitrates, Salinas Valley, California

Modeling of Nitrate Transport Coupled Dentrification in the Saturated Zone
A numerical model for simulating nitrate transport coupled to microbial activity in the saturated zone is presented. A coupled system of equations describes the transport and microbial...

Agriculture and Groundwater Quality
Nitrates and pesticides used in agriculture cause groundwater degradation. Agricultural practices in the U.S. will have to be changed to alleviate the health effects of these chemicals....

The Economic Feasibility of Using Ethanol to Accelerate Groundwater Denitrification
A substantial buildup of nitrate in the groundwater of the eastern Sandhills region of Nebraska is projected by some planners. A groundwater carbon source such as ethanol promotes denitrification,...

Leaching of Nitrate from Freely Drained–Irrigated Fields Treated with Municipal Sludges
A municipal sludge land application experiment was initiated in 1975 near Riverside, California. From 1975 to 1983 sludges from the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area were applied on experimental...

Modeling Irrigation and Nitrogen Management
Irrigation increases the potential for nitrate accumulation in the groundwater in two ways. It increases the water content in the root zone creating a greater potential for leaching. Two...

Water and Nitrogen Management Practices in the Central Platte Valley of Nebraska
Contamination of groundwater by nitrogen leached from fertilizer on irrigated soils is related to the quantity of nitrate present, the leaching potential based on soil texture and percent...

Economic Evaluation of Treatment Alternatives for Nitrate-Contaminated Water Supplies
This paper discusses the economic feasibility of removing nitrates from water supplies. Potential nitrate treatment methods include ion exchange, reverse osmosis, bio-denitrification,...

Pesticide and Nitrate Movement Under Conservation and Conventional Tilled Plots
Carbofuran, alachlor, atrazine, nitrate and bromide (a tracer) were applied to plots with conventional and conservation tillage. During the early part of the growing season the conservation...

Effects of Agriculture on Ground-Water Quality in Dade County, Florida
Multidepth wells at five test fields and a monitoring network of water-table wells in Dade County, Florida, were sampled twice during 1985 to determine concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorus,...

Implications of Nitrogen Transport by the Okanagan River
The long-term mean of total nitrogen load estimated in the river channel above the inlet to Skaha Lake is 906 lb day** minus **1. The apportionment of ammonia and nitrate plus nitrite...

Nitrate Analysis Utilizing Groundwater Modeling
Groundwater is the sole source of potable water for the Town of Barnstable, Massachusetts. It is, therefore, of paramount importance to maintain the overall quality within acceptable drinking...

Potential for Nitrate Removal from Groundwater Supplies Using Biological Deintrification
Nitrate concentrations in groundwater supplies have been increasing over the years throughout many areas in the U. S. to the point of posing potential health dangers to a multitude of...
