USGA Summary Points:Recycled water, water that has been treated in the wetland, is now being used for golf course irrigation lessening the need to pump groundwater. The wetland system is very effective at removing nitrogen from incoming runoff water. This confirms the value of the wetland as a treatment system. Dye tracer studies indicate that water takes from three to five days to traverse even a small cell, and the wetland cell needs to be designed to increase the resident time of the water in the cell. Dye tracer studies indicate that in small wetland systems wind can have a significant affect [effect] on the distribution of materials.
