Studies of artificial wetlands at Santee, California, focused on nitrogen removal from municipal wastewaters using lower-cost alternatives to methanol to supply carbon to drive denitrification. Using plant biomass, mulched and applied to the surface of the artificial marsh beds, mean removal efficiencies were 89% for TN at an application rate of 8.4 - 12.5 cm per day and 65% for TN at an application rate of 17 - 20 cm per day.
