Constructed Floating Wetlands Case Studies
Kenilworth Sewage Treatment Plant, Unitywater
Clarity Aquatic has partnered with Unitywater and Covey Associates to conduct a leading-edge floating treatment wetlands trial and pilot study at Kenilworth Sewage Treatment Plant in South East Queensland. The trial aimed to demonstrate how wetlands can be used as a sustainable low- technology approach to enhance the treatment capacity of existing infrastructure and reduce the amount of nutrient discharged from the treatment plant.
Drayton Valley, Alberta
Further afield, Clarity Aquatic and Covey Associates are working closely with Brazeau County and the University of Alberta to assess how floating wetlands may enhance sewage treatment processes in clarifying ponds. This unique and exciting project represents one of the few full-scale floating wetland projects in cold-weather climates.
