Abstract

The processes involved in the removal of ammonium-nitrogen from treated wastewater by land application are described. A simple model has been developed that can be used to determine optimum operating conditions (flooding period, drying period, infiltration rate) and in the selection of soils that can best remove nitrogen. The model can be used to explain why certain recharge schemes have not worked. In Perth the model suggests the sandy soil should be amended by clay.
