This dataset contains nutrient loads from storm events near a bioswale along a street in Logan UT. The purpose of this study was to analyze the nutrient and pollutant load in stormwater that is entering the bioretention area. Samples were collected from the gutter along the street and from in the biorentention basin. Road samples were collected using syringes and Nalgene sample bottles. The basin samples were collected using suction cup water samplers installed in the ground to collect pore water. Weather data is also included in the dataset. The weather data was collected using HOBOware instruments for wind direction and speed, temperature, relative humidity, and rain. All data was collected on a datalogger. The soil pore water was analyzed to determine movement through the soil of the nutrients and pollutants. Water samples were analyzed at the Utah Water Research Lab for nutrients, metals (copper, zinc, lead, arsenic, cadmium, selenium), and dissolved organic carbon.

Additional Metadata

Name Value
Variable Description water quality: metals, nutrients, carbon
Data Collection Method Grab samples from roadway gutters, soil pore water samples from lysimeters installed in bioretention basins. Weather data is collected using HOBO weather station. Flow measurements collected using a tipping bucket flow meter in the drain and a v-notch weir that is in the curb cutout retention area.
Data Processing Method The AQ2 discrete analyzer will be used to determine nitrogen and phosphorus levels. Inductively coupled plasma mass spectroscopy will be used to determine metal loadings. Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) will be determined using a combustion total organic carbon analyzer with nondispersive infrared detector.
