Developments in Nutrient Monitoring

July 3


Nutrients are essential for biological systems, but too much can create problems for rivers, lakes and beaches. The water framework directive creates requirements to control nutrient discharges, so the Environment Agency is commencing trials of a new way of regulating using Catchment Permitting and Catchment Nutrient Balancing. Both initiatives will require focused measurements to demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed schemes.

This workshop will look at a variety of measurement technologies available to monitor and control key nutrients including nitrates and phosphorous compounds. It will help water companies and others select suitable instruments for nutrient management projects.
