GIS-based nitrogen removal model for assessing Florida's surficial aquifer vulnerability from onsite wastewater treatment systems
Florida's aquifer system exhibits varying hydrogeological characteristics such as shallow depth to aquifer and karst features. These characteristics contribute to spatial variability in ground water vulnerability to nitrogen contamination. The vulnerability of ground water warrants vulnerability studies that allow the zonation of areas more or less susceptible to contamination from land use practices. This study provides a method to identify areas vulnerable to contamination by examining the fate and transport of ammonium and nitrate from onsite wastewater treatment systems (OWTS) through a ...
