Whitaker Treatment Wetlands: How does it work?

The Whitaker Treatment Wetlands features a pump, a solar panel, a number of measurement valves, and agriculture-style drainage devices. In May, 2018 the entire system is flushing water through it to test the levels and flow rates. Water sampling is scheduled for mid-June, in addition to planting the treatment cells with wetland plants. Stay tuned for more updates - in the mean time here's a look at this week's test run!
