The nitrification inhibitor, N-Serve was applied to long term BOD tests to determine the nitrogenous oxygen demand. This was compared to the NOD calculated from the N-series conversions observed over the course of the incubation. Preliminary inhibitor studies, involving measurement of N-series and variation of glucose concentration with time, were conducted on synthetic samples of glucose and/or glutamic acid spiked with ammonia and/or nitrite to assess its affect on heterotrophic respiration and evaluate its accuracy and limitations. Extensive testing was then performed on sewage treatment plant effluents and on the receiving waters of the Potomac and Lehigh Rivers. It was found that this method of determining NOD: was accurate; did not affect heterotrophic respiration; did not interfere with dissolved oxygen measurements via the dissolved oxygen probe or Winkler method; and was not applicable when nitrite was present in a significant amount.
