Wetlands can provide for natural, low-energy and environmentally beneficial water quality improvement. This course includes: an updated summary of principles and methods of successful treatment wetland design; overview of treatment wetland regulations in Florida; detailed case histories of point and non-point source wastewater treatment using wetlands, including stormwater, municipal wastewater, industrial wastewater, and agricultural discharges. This very informative course will also feature an overview of the world’s largest treatment wetlands, the Everglades Stormwater Treatment Area, summarizing findings of the Science Plan on wetland performance and optimization.  Audience participation is encouraged.
