We designed experiments to evaluate the fate of the addition of wastewater-borne nutrients injected into the shallow subsurface in the Florida Keys. During three different experiments, either bulk unlabeled phosphate, radio-labeled phosphate 32 3y . 14 1y . PO , or bulk unlabeled nitrate NO was added simultaneously with conservative tracers sulfur hexafluoride and 43 . I-131 into a wastewater injection well on Long Key. Relative concentration changes monitored over time indicated that both… CONTINUE READING
