Description

How to Design a Treatment Wetland

Thursday, 30 May 2019 @ 8.00am to 5.00pm

The Wetland Training course will provide an introduction to the field of wetland design for stormwater and wastewater treatment with the main themes covered including:

  • An introduction to the science of wetlands and constructed wetland types
  • Pollutant removal mechanisms within treatment wetlands
  • Pro and cons of wetlands for differing effluent types – key things to consider or look for in a wetland design
  • Design steps including relevant technical guidance
  • Construction and establishment of natural systems
  • Anew challenge: broad scale wetlands – an application for rehabilitating landscapes and environmental offsets

The training will be supported by a selection of case studies and will have an emphasis on wetland design in the Queensland policy context. At the end of the training, participants will have a greater understanding of wetland function, the use and limitations of wetland systems and a collection of resources and materials for designing and assessing wetlands and other biological systems.

Speakers:

Damian McCann & Dr Mark Bayley, Co-Directors of Australian Wetland Consulting

Damian is a Wetland Ecologist with over 15 years experience in the design, construction and management of wetland systems for a range of applications.
