Constructed Wetlands

Constructed Wetlands

Constructed wetlands are ecological service providers. They offer many opportunities for habitat restoration and wildlife sanctuaries, food, medicine, building materials and bio-fuels production. Wetlands treat greywater (wash water), blackwater (sewage) and stormwater and can be designed to fit your landscape as a lush, evergreen feature. As a viable stormwater management feature, wetlands encourage interception, retention and evapotranspiration of rainwater.

DIG Cooperative can work with the natural features of any site to integrate constructed wetlands and bio-swales. These natural filters screen out pollutants in residential, commercial and public waste water before it enters the local ground water table, creek, river, pond, or estuary. Wetlands can also be incorporated into more complex waste water systems to treat water for indoor use.

By following EPA standards, we design our wetlands to eliminate the possibility of mosquitos and other pathogen vectors.
