Example text

The ultimate extension of sub-surface flow wetlands is to simply use the water to irrigate terrestrial plants, particularly tree plantations. This is a favoured method for disposing of water which has such serious quality problems that it should not be allowed to return into natural waters. Some promising systems allow water to flow downwards through a loose substrate such as sand, densely packed with the living roots of various reeds and rushes. These vertical-flow wetlands have mostly been used for small-scale water treatment to date, as it is difficult to keep the downward water movement uniform over larger areas.

As this area will have more water pressure on it than any other part of the wall, the soil around the pipe must be compacted in thoroughly. On a small scale, this job must be done by hand, and a dirty, tiring job it is too! On wider walls, compacting wheels designed to fit onto the arm of an excavator can be used instead. The underwater landscape The arrangement and type of soils below the surface decide where, how and which plants will grow, in turn deciding the very nature of a wetland as these are a dominant part of many habitats.

The underwater landscape should be planned in advance, including planting shelves and plateaus that will be submerged later, though smaller planting pockets and narrow shelves can be made with hand tools even after flooding. If an open view across water is desired from some places, the shoreline should drop quickly into relatively deep water, planting shelves should be narrow, and lower-growing plants should be used. For extensive stands of reeds and rushes elsewhere, make their underwater plateaus broad.
