Identifying and testing continuous monitoring technologies to track and control nutrients in source and product waters, including treated effluents, is important to achieving further reduction of nutrients in the aquatic environment. In 2005, the U.S. EPA Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Programs Advanced Monitoring Systems (AMS) Center, operated by Battelle under a cooperative agreement with EPA, verified the performance of two nutrient monitors at an industrial wastewater treatment facility. One technology measured nitrate only, with results expressed as total nitrogen. The other technology measured total nitrogen and total phosphorus. Additional testing of nitrate monitoring technologies is being planned under the AMS Center for environmental applications for measuring nutrients in ground water.
