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 and three Scirpus species; the other mixture was planted with Sparganium americanum and two Typha species. In addition, the experiment tested the effects of removing topsoil, sealing cell bottoms with clay, and covering cells with loamy sand topsoil. The constructed wetlands were effective in removing nitrogen but would need to be augmented to enhance phosphorus removal.
