Research Project: Removing Dissolved Phosphorus in Runoff with Water Quality Improvement Structures

Location: Hydraulic Engineering Research

Project Number: 6217-13000-009-38
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 01, 2013
End Date: Aug 30, 2015

Objective:
The objectives of this cooperative research project are to demonstrate the effectiveness of a phosphorus removal structure constructed to trap and remove dissolved phosphorus from runoff using industrial by-products as phosphorus sorbing materials.

Approach:
Work together in demonstrating the effectiveness of phosphorus removal structure by monitoring inflow and treated water through the use of automatic samplers and a flow measuring device (i.e., H-flume) from a field site in eastern Oklahoma, thereby allowing one to determine the phosphorus load reduction.
