This week-long workshop will be an immersion in constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment. Students will be introduced to the basic principles of domestic wastewater treatment with natural systems and explore the major design considerations including treatment requirements, process flow diagrams, and process selection. We will cover system analysis, site investigation, permitting, treatment options, design basics and material selection. The course will also cover design history and current design theory. We will spend a day visiting constructed wetlands in the area. Students are encouraged to bring specific projects to work through design considerations. After completing the course, students will be able to design and build a small constructed wetland for wastewater treatment.
