Research Project: EVALUATION OF MODIFIED IRON FOR FILTER TREATMENT OF DRAINAGE WATERS

Location: Soil Drainage Research

Project Number: 5080-13000-010-18
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Mar 18, 2010
End Date: Apr 30, 2014

Objective:
To develop a filter treatment system (containing modified iron) to remove nutrients and pesticides from agricultural drainage waters.

Approach:
Laboratory contaminant batch tests, saturated hydraulic conductivity tests, and saturated solute transport tests, followed by field pilot tests, will be used to develop filter treatment systems (containing modified iron) capable of removing nutrient and pesticide contaminants from drainage waters.
