Five sets of microcosm batch experiments were performed to evaluate mechanisms of nitrate removal in constructed wetlands. The study evaluated biological denitrification activity as a function of 1) electron donors carbon and sulfur 2) wetland sediment depth 3) oxygen and abiotic reactions and 4) carbon addition and attached populations from wetland bulrushes. Wetland-water-only controls amended with nitrate showed negligible denitrification rates. Nitrate-only amended wetland sediments… CONTINUE READING
