Removal of Nitrogen and Phosphorus from Storm Water Drainage

Wave Blue
Nov 17, 2018

Most of the storm water that drains into the Truckee Meadows municipal storm drain system is conveyed untreated to the receiving waters of the Truckee River, and to three playas in unincorporated Washoe County. Nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in the river have historically caused excessive plant and algal growth, which depletes oxygen when the plants die and decay. Our members seek practical and implementable solutions for the removal of nitrogen and phosphorus.
