Wow, lots of great thoughts on this subject. I appreciate everybody who has commented and/or offered other areas of study.

If we look back say 100 years ago, what kind of filtration methods were being deployed then? Does anybody have any documented examples?

In regards to my opening post, are our plants in competition with the filters? Plants seem to be the higher life form, but do they out compete bacteria for nitrogen?
