Constructed Wetlands

Volume 5 Number 1 January/February 2006

The concept of using constructed wetlands for water treatment arose from observations of natural wetlands’ ability to remove contaminants from the watershed. In both systems, biological, physical, and chemical processes that reduce contaminants occur—including settling, microbial oxidation, anaerobic decomposition, denitrification, adsorption, and precipitation. This issue’s feature articles describe a broad range of contaminants being treated by constructed wetlands, the suitability of different types of wetlands for different situations, and, importantly for both public relations and public health, how to keep the mosquitoes at bay.
