Denitrification walls are a useful approach for removing nitrate from shallow groundwater, but little is known about the sustainability of nitrate removal, which is dependent on the continued supply of organic carbon to denitrifying bacteria. To address this question, we monitored nitrate removal, denitrification and carbon dynamics in a pilot-scale denitrification wall for 5 yr. The wall continuously removed more than 95% of the incoming nitrate in groundwater, which ranged from 5 to 15 mg N L… CONTINUE READING
