Abstract:
Constructed wetlands manifest a significant potential for removing nitrogen from wastewater. The study was conducted at a free water surface constructed wetland receiving partially treated dairy wastewater. A series of four cells was lined with plastic and a parallel series lined with clay. The objectives were to evaluate 1) nitrogen removal from the wastewater stream and 2) nitrogen accumulation in the soil and plant biomass. Above and below ground plant tissues and soil samples were collected from twenty-four locations during one year. Total nitrogen removal from wastewater was about 17 percent. The clay-lined cells accumulated more nitrogen in the soil, and less in plant biomass compared with the plastic-lined cells. Nitrogen accumulated was distributed evenly among the soil, above, and below ground plant biomass. Maximum total nitrogen in the soil was found during the second sampling event (about 1100 mg kg') About 90 percent of the accumulated nitrogen was organic.
