The California Lake Management Society is hosting this free webinar on managed nitrate addition to enhance water quality in lakes and reservoirs.
Nitrate is a significant water pollutant with potential environmental impacts ranging from eutrophication to health risks to infants. But under certain circumstances, nitrate may enhance water quality through a number of mechanisms, including regulation of redox potential and suppression of nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria. In this webinar, Dr. Beutel will explore a range of case studies in which nitrate addition enhanced surface water quality including: purposeful addition of nitrate to lakes to repress internal phosphorus loading, enhance organic matter oxidation, and impede bottom-water accumulation of methyl mercury; incidental addition of nitrate from point and non-point discharges to reservoirs and lakes; and nitrate addition to lakes to affect phytoplankton and zooplankton composition.
