Description
Constructed wetlands can be used as artificial wastewater treatment systems. There are many design factors which affect the effluent quality from a Vegetated Submerged Bed constructed wetland. This 2-hour interactive online course covers the consideration of some of these factors that can significantly reduce the effluent variation. It also provides a brief summary of expected wetland treatment performance, describes issues that are important in the design and layout of a Vegetated Submerged Bed wetland, and includes a design example. Additional Red Vector courses are available on other topics related to constructed wetlands. This course is based on guidance documents published by the Environmental Protection Agency.
