Abstract
In the last 5 years, many mining companies and engineering firms have experimented with the construction of wetland treatment systems. The U.S. Bureau of Mines has been actively involved, from a research perspective, with this approach to acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment since its inception. In this chapter the status of constructed wetland technology is discussed with respect to the construction and performance of systems, chemical and biological processes that affect AMD chemistry within constructed wetlands, and the future of this technology as perceived by the Bureau of Mines.
