    Description

    The City of Albuquerque has funded the Constructed Wetland Pilot Project (CWPP) since 1995 at the City's Southside Water Reclamation Plant (SWRP). Results from CWPP and other wetland treatment projects indicate that appropriately designed surface-flow wetlands could increase the cost-efficiencies of wastewater treatment, as well as help the City meet present and future discharge limits for nitrate, ammonia, organic nitrogen, various metals, biological oxygen demand, and total suspended solids, among other constituents. Results from CWPP also support the option to construct a 5-acre or larger demonstration-scale treatment wetland that would provide increased realism for evaluating the effectiveness of wetland polishing and potential habitat benefits.
