WHY A WETLAND: Remediation Through Constructed Wetlands

  • Provides a Safer Alternative to Treatment and Disposal Methods: Less energy consumed - No degradation of the existing environment - Cost effective
  • Allows for Reuse of Water after Filtration: Provides an alternative source for water - One that is close and reuses resources
  • Provides a Place for Wildlife and Vegetation to Flourish: A wetland is home to many animal and plant species - Attracts migratory species
  • Provides an Alternative Form of Job and Income Opportunities: Jobs for maintaining the wetlands and accompanying facilities will open - Interests like bird watching and education can be exploited
  • Provides a Low Cost Filtration System: Unsafe water can filter through the wetland for community use
