Research Project: Assessing the Effects of a Constructed Wetland to Reduce Phosphorus Losses from Agriculture

Location: Soil Drainage Research

Project Number: 5080-13210-002-039-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2019
End Date: Aug 14, 2023

Objective:
Quantify the ability of a constructed wetland to reduce phosphorus losses from a legacy phosphorus field.

Approach:
ARS will use existing edge-of-field (EOF) sites and expand one edge-of-field site to collect and assess the effects of a constructed wetland on water quality from a legacy phosphorus field. Discharge and water quality data will be collected using an upstream downstream approach to quantify the effects of the wetland.
