Three different woodchip forms were tested for bromide sorption including ground woodchip, unwashed woodchips, and washed woodchips. We used six varying initial bromide concentrations to conduct the bromide sorption experiments with each woodchip form. Data on the initial and equilibrium bromide concentrations, wood mass, and initial and equilibrium solution pH from each of the six experiments are presented. Seven bromide tracer tests were conducted on field-scale denitrification beds. In this paper, data from each of the tracer tests including variation of bromide concentration over time and hydraulic indices of the tracer tests are presented. Interpretation of the data can be found in the research article entitled “Efficacy of bromide tracers for evaluating the hydraulic performance of denitrification beds treating agricultural drainage water” [1].
