Water Quality Control - Nitrogen Removal

measure of the landscape’s potential to improve water quality through removal of dissolved or suspended nitrogen and moderation (cooling) of water temperature. In the ESII Tool outputs, this is reported as "Total (Water) Nitrogen". (Units: Percent Performance and Service Acres)

Engineering Units: The predicted maximum and actual removal of nitrogen compounds from water flowing over a site through vegetative and soil filtration processes given assumed and observed potential nitrogen sources.
