Nitrogen data collected in real-time on eastern Iowa rivers

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - The federal government is now measuring the concentration of nitrate plus nitrite in two eastern Iowa rivers.  The probes are located on the Cedar River at Cedar Rapids and on the Iowa River at Wapello.  The probes measure the combined concentration of nitrate and nitrite in the river water every 15 minutes and transmit this data back to be displayed on the USGS's website.  The on-line nitrate information can be found by clicking on http://ia.water.usgs.gov/ and then selecting the locations mentioned above from the clickable map.
