Despite the historical concern with the issue of domestic sewage effluent and the input of organic matter causes profound changes in receiving water bodies directly influencing the quality of watersheds . organs sanitation are charged to an improvement in their treatments and has emerged the need for deployment of additional treatments stations contributing to the quality of water resources . With this comes the need to prevent the discharge of effluent with high nutrient concentrations and high potential for reuse in water bodies . For the implementation of tertiary treatment in wastewater treatment plants should know the dynamics of the elements C and N. the use of stable isotopes and mass spectrometry can help to understand the processes of cycling of these elements . Nitrogen is important for detailed studies to identify the main routes of transformation and removal of this element . No studies using N sources enriched in 15N in maturation ponds and stabilization in full operation to be a challenge for the research group.
