A recent inventory, sponsored by the U.S. EPA Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory in Cincinnati, OH documented the presence of over 150 constructed wetlands systems in the U.S., for the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewaters. The total flow received by these systems is about 400,000 cu m/d (100 mgd). This paper summarizes some of the results from the inventory, including: location, type, vegetation, design flow, loading rates, and costs for wetland systems where this information was available. The paper also discusses some 'lessons learned' from site visits to several of the systems.
