The efficiency of nitrogen stripping by intercropping forages with corn is evaluated in a three-year study at Muskegon County Wastewater Treatment Facility in Michign. Corn is grown as the major cash crop at the Muskegon treatment facility, but experience has shown that corn is not efficient in removing nitrogen from applied wastewater except during a few short weeks during its growing season. Studies were designed to evaluate the improved nitrogen removal for the entire irrigation season when corn is no-till planted in a number of selected forage crops. In addition to nitrogen stripping studies, sludge compatibility and metal contaminated sludge studies were evaluated to determine the feasibility of applying sludge to land which is being used in a wastewater treatment system.
