What is the source of N that people are passing into their septic tank? What types of food could we avoid to pass less N?
is this being recorded? If not can you give permission for us to record it?
Lisa said in the beginning this is being recorded.
Little red dot in the upper left is on
Hi Joe, yes it's being recorded. I can share the link in an email afterwards
Thanks, guess I need to open my eyes!
No problem Joe, everyone is learning all this stuff on the go!
Does the N2 gas released to the atmosphere, come back down to earth in rainfall and either percolate through the soil to the water table or directly land in lakes and rivers?
How quickly do the woodchips decompose and need to be replenished?
Outstanding resource online now!
Are these systems better than regional treatment plants?
Proteins and fats contain nitrogen
With ATU'S we see 51-79 percent reduction in nitrogen. Can you identify what accounts for the wide range?
also amino acids
the air we breathe is 79% N2
Also, what was the reduction in Nitrogen on the last system presented? With the wood chips?
So, vegetarians who compost would be good candidates to use septic systems and send less N into the environment.
12" of woodchips but how big is the total area of them (how many trees are used).
some "vegetables" like beans are very high in PROTEIN!
AWESOME job, everyone! Thanks so much for this!
Yes, and beans and rice make a complete protein
But I'm with you.....veggie people, grow it at home
