Description:

This document assesses the application, performance, and scientific knowledge of free surface water (FWS) wetlands to treat municipal wastewater and to meet other societal and ecological needs.

This report is not intended to cover subject areas to the extent needed for actual design and operation. Rather, the objective of this assessment is to produce a document that public works engineers, consulting engineers, regulatory agency representatives, researchers and citizens can use to evaluate the feasibility of FWS treatment wetland technology.

The scope of the document includes a summary and evaluation of FWS treatment wetland performance, and discussion of important issues in the planning, design and operation of FWS treatment wetlands.
