Nitrogen Balance (1 hr)

This sessions were presented at the 2020 NOWRA Mega-Conference.

A mass balance is a fundamental engineering principle. You define a system boundary, measure how much of a constituent moves into and out of the boundary, and the balance is still within the system. Thus, for the land application of wastewater, a mass balance approach should be the ideal means of estimating how much nitrogen will enter the groundwater. However, it hard to measure what you cannot see. If so, should wastewater professionals focus on nitrogen removal before the effluent is applied to the soil and/or nitrogen removal via the cover crop and pretend like the soil provides no nitrogen removal
