AbstractEvaluates the potential of constructed wetlands to treat nitrogen loads released from livestock wastewater. Constructed wetlands were planted with species mixtures. One mixture was planted with Juncus effusus, Scirpus cyperinus, and other species; the other mixture was planted with Sparganium americanum and two Typha species. In addition, the experiment tested the effects of water depth on denitrification enzyme activity. Results indicated that denitrification enzyme activity can be significant in treating livestock wastewater and was effected by water depth.
