Wetlands and Pollution

Ned Rozell, Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks

This forum from the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks discusses the creation of wetlands as a means to help cure village sewage problems. The author believes that constructed wetlands have the potential to capture pollutants from sewage lagoons and keep them from drifting downstream to be ingested by animals and plants.
