Experience Note: Designing Constructed Wetlands for Multiple Uses

2006: The Ningbo Water and Environment Project is being implemented in the Ningbo Municipality of Zhejiang Province in China, south of the Hangzhou Bay. This project aims to reduce land-based pollution along the Cixi coast and the East China Sea, promote innovative low cost wastewater treatment techniques and encourage coastal zone conservation through: a) the construction of a wetland for tertiary treatment of one Cixi city wastewater treatment plant, b) the development of a wetland center with multiple purposes (including wetland restoration, non-point source pollution reduction, bird watching and environmental education) and; c) the dissemination of trainings and workshops to promote various project experiences. This project represents current good practice for multipurpose design for constructed wetland design and wetland restoration.
