Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Nitrogen Contributions to Water Resources in North Carolina
Elevated nitrogen concentrations in groundwater and surface waters are a health and environmental concern. The presenters monitored concentrations of nitrogen in groundwater at sites that use onsite wastewater systems (OWS), in surface waters, and in deeper groundwater near the systems to determine the OWS nitrogen contributions. They’ll describe the monitoring techniques and results to provide attendees with a holistic understanding of the role of the OWS in the nitrogen cycle and possible approaches to watershed nutrient management plans.
