Biography
Hello, my name is Stephane Chenard. I am from Peace River, a small town in northern Alberta. I enjoy the great outdoors and activities outside such as quading, skidooing, fishing and jet boating. This will not be my first time attending a CWSF as I have competed with a partner in the CWSF last year winning bronze in the intermediate category. This year I am working on a biological filter to cleanse runoff water of nitrates using denitrifying bacteria. My advice for students who are thinking about doing a science fair project is this: GO FOR IT!!

Fertilizer Fiasco: Is Denitrification the Answer?
Challenge:Environment
Category:Senior
Region:Peace Country
City:Peace River, AB
School:Glenmary School
Abstract:The objective of my project is to test the feasibility of a biological filter to strip water of nitrogen compounds, notably nitrates, using denitrifying bacteria isolated from soil samples as the means to do so. The end goal is of this project being to build and test a prototype of this denitrifying filter to prove its viability in a real world application.
