Removal of Nutrients and Trace Organic Contaminants in StorRemoval of Nutrients and Trace Organic Contaminants in Stormwater Treatment Systems mwater Treatment Systems
The webcast discussed the tested stormwater treatment modules with different media using urban runoff from a watershed in Sonoma, California. The work included spiking stormwater with trace organic contaminants that may be found in urban runoff. The findings demonstrate a successful approach to controlling nitrate and trace organics in urban runoff with woodchips and biochar in combination. This advances the concept of stormwater CTR systems to achieve co-benefits of flood control, groundwater recharge, and water quality improvement.
