Nitrogen Transport and Transformation Beneath Stormwater Retention Basins in Karst Areas and Effectiveness of Stormwater Best Management Practices for Reducing Nitrate Leaching to Ground Water in Marion County, Florida

Stormwater Academy, University of Central Florida

Final report on nitrogen transport and transformation beneath retention basins in Karst areas. Compares and contrasts nitrate leaching in two retention basins with very different infiltration rates. Describes the soil modification done to the rapidly infiltrating retention basin to increase nitrate removal and the results of the modification in reducing nitrate movement into the ground water and on the basin’s infiltration properties.
