The innovative and alternative technology provisions of the Clean Water Act of 1977 (PL 95-217) provide financial incentives to communities that use wastewater treatment alternatives to reduce costs or energy consumption over conventional systems. Some of these technologies have been only recently developed and are not in widespread use in the United States. In an effort to increase awareness of the potential benefits of such alternatives and to encourage their implementation where applicable, the Municipal Environmental Research Laboratory has initiated this series of Emerging Technology Assessment reports. This document discusses the applicability and technical and economic feasibility of using natural and artificial wetland systems for municipal wastewater treatment facilities.
