Acid Mine Water Treatment in Wetlands: An Overview of an Emergent Technology.
Proc Res & Applic Aquatic Plants for Water Treatment & Resource Rec Conf 1986 :255-262
This paper presents an inventory of 20 constructed wetlands as part of a long-term evaluative study. Preliminary results indicate that the wetlands dominated by emergent species are outperforming the sphagnum-dominated wetlands, and that much of the water treatment is accomplished by other aspects of the wetland, including bacteria, algae, amendments, and other plants.
