This dataset contains Total Nitrogen and Total Phosphorous in influent and effluent water samples from GIRF bioretention. Synthetic storms were run in each bioretention (Houdeshel et al.,2013) which represents storms in Salt Lake City. When synthetic storms were run in bioretention every month, water effluent from the bioretention passed through tipping buckets and autosamplers. Composite water samples from autosampler were collected using 10mL vials, and water samples were analyzed in the laboratory for TP, and TN using Astoria Pacific Autoanalyzer. “in” in dataset represents synthetic storm coming from synthetic storm tank to bioretention and “out” represents effluent coming out of each bioretention cell.

Details on GIRF bioretention and schematic is attached.
