Vermont part of study of nitrogen problem in Long Island Sound

Sep 29th, 2012 | By | Category: Water

Vermont’s wastewater treatment facilities, along with facilities in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, will be participating in a study beginning this fall to determine how to reduce nitrogen discharge into the Connecticut River. Nitrogen discharges from wastewater treatment plants contribute to an area in Long Island Sound, called a hypoxic zone, that is devoid of oxygen during parts of the year.
