Why are plants used in treatment wetlands? This blog explores six important aspects to their incorporation into wetlands for water treatment
Have you ever wondered what exactly IS a treatment wetland? See our blog post for information on how treatment wetlands can be used to remove constituents like ammonia, arsenic, selenium, and sulphate (to list a few!) from water, and how these differ from habitat wetlands.
This blog will be updated every couple of weeks and will cover topics that we work with day to day at Contango, some progress updates of studies and projects, and even a guest blog from time to time. The posts will vary from being scientific in nature, to random ponderings relevant to our areas of work.
This page will be updated very soon with our first blog topic, and we would like your ideas and input! Some upcoming posts:
- What is a constructed wetland treatment system
- Why are plants used in a constructed wetland
- How microbiome analysis can be used for environmental applications
- How to collect samples for microbial profiling
- Why is a pilot-phase often necessary for constructed wetland optimization
- How do microbes help constructed wetlands treat metals
- What is the difference between microbiome, metagenome, genome, and transcriptome analyses
- What happens when a constructed wetland gets cold or freezes
- What are some different passive treatment options
