About Constructed Wetlands
A constructed wetland is an artificial wetland created as a new or restored habitat for native and migratory wildlife, for anthropogenic discharge such as wastewater, stormwater runoff, or sewage treatment, for land reclamation after mining, refineries, or other ecological disturbances such as required mitigation for natural areas lost to a development.
Natural wetlands act as a biofilter, removing sediments and pollutants such as heavy metals from the water, and constructed wetlands can be designed to emulate these features.
The design team at Northern Scapes understands these principles and can work with builders and contractors to design, build and/or move a wetland as required. Many local governments are regulating wetlands as part of building & site plans. If you are faced with a wetland issue, contact us... we can help!
