Short summary
In this study we measured phytoplankton use of nitrogen from wastewater treatment plant effluent in a river. The project was designed to test a new technique for isolating phytoplankton from river water prior to isotopic analysis in order to use trace nitrogen source use under environmental conditions. This study helps us understand the fate of anthropogenic nitrogen in aquatic ecosystems, which is essential to establishing effective nutrient management plans.
