Fate Of Phosphorus And Nitrogen In Ponds Receiving Highway Runoff
Abbreviated Journal Title
Sci. Total Environ.
This research study is designed to investigate the fate of phosphorus and nitrogen in detention/retention ponds receiving highway runoff. Investigations comprising loading, quality and isolation chamber studies have been carried out in a 1.2 ha, shallow pond located in Central Florida. Transformation and exchange rates for nutrients across the water sediment interface have been determined. Approximately 99% of the phosphorus input accumulates in the sediments and 85–90% of the nitrogen input is removed from the system. The study represents the first step towards determination of design criteria for detention/retention ponds based on water quality improvement.
