A new alternative septic-system design is presented utilizing reactive porous media barriers for passive in situ attenuation of NO3−. The reactive material consists of solid organic carbon (sawdust) which promotes NO3- attenuation by heterotrophic denitrification. Four field trials are discussed demonstrating two barrier configurations: as a horizontal layer positioned in the vadose zone below a conventional septic-system infiltration bed and as a vertical wall intercepting a horizontally… CONTINUE READING
