Abstract

A habitat-driven approach to CWWT design is defined as designing the constructed wetland to maximize habitat values for a given site within the constraints of meeting specified treatment criteria. This is in contrast to the more typical approach of designing the CWWT to maximize treatment efficiency, and then, perhaps, adding wildlife habitat features. The habitat-driven approach is advocated for two reasons: (1) because good wetland habitat is critically lacking, and (2) because it is hypothesized that well-designed habitat will result in good, sustainable wastewater treatment.
