Back to Main Project

Project Highlights

  • Sensors will measure nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, or Total Nitrogen.
  • Sensor data compared to certified laboratory results.
  • Maximum sensor cost: $1,500.
  • Contaminants Addressed

  • Nitrogen

The EPA Advanced Septic System Nitrogen Sensor Challenge seeks to spur market development of an accurate and precise low-cost sensor to measure nitrogen compounds in wastewaters associated with onsite septic systems.
