Ellicott City, MD – “The Next Generation of Stormwater Wetlands” is the latest and final release of the six-part Wetlands & Watersheds Article Series from the Center for Watershed Protection.
This article provides information about a new generation of
stormwater wetlands with improved performance and community acceptance, in the
hopes of rejuvenating their use as a stormwater treatment practice. Two new stormwater wetland designs are presented: an emergent wetland/pond system and a wooded wetland.
The authors recommend their use in place of the classic shallow
marsh and pond/wetland system designs, and discuss
some ways to further develop and test these new prototypes. Visit the wetlands website (http://www.cwp.org/wetlands) to learn how communities can integrate wetlands into larger watershed protection efforts. Also available are Articles 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6 of the series. All articles are available for free download at www.cwp.org/wetlands/articles.htm
