TKN Determination in Water and Wastewater
Nitrogen-containing compounds act as nutrients in streams, rivers, and reservoirs. The major routes of entry of nitrogen into bodies of water are municipal and industrial wastewater, septic tanks, feedlot discharges, animal waste runoff from fertilized agricultural fields and lawns and discharges from car exhausts. Bacteria in water quickly convert nitrites to nitrates and this process uses up oxygen. High nitrates in drinking water can cause digestive disturbances in people.
