    Authors: ,

Abstract

Denitrification bioreactors are one of several strategies being implemented to meet the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy goal of reducing nonpoint source nitrogen by 41%. While this practice has been proven capable of reducing nitrate-nitrogen loads, less is understood about the spatial dynamics of the nitrate removal within the bioreactors or the potential for unintended byproducts to form. To ensure the long-term sustainability of this practice, the removal dynamics and potential for alternative byproducts to form should be evaluated.
