Abstract:
A method of in-situ groundwater nitrification or de-nitrification by extracting groundwater from the ground, adding oxygen (to nitrify) or carbon (to de-nitrify) with nutrients, and injecting the groundwater back into the ground where local bacteria convert ammonia to nitrate and nitrates to nitrogen gas.
