How do I get Started?
If you are looking for a cost effective, environmentally friendly way to remove nutrients and pesticides from runoff water, then constructed wetlands may be the solution for you. This page is designed to give growers an idea of the chain of events necessary in order to plan, construct, and monitor constructed wetlands. There are some significant initial costs associated with construction, but when completed, constructed wetlands require little input beyond occasional waterway maintenance and willow removal. Monitoring and maintenance costs for wetlands are generally very low.
