The Wetland Training course will provide an introduction to the field of wetland design for stormwater and wastewater treatment with the main themes covered including:

  • An introduction to the science of wetlands and constructed wetland types
  • Pollutant removal mechanisms within treatment wetlands
  • Pro and cons of wetlands for differing effluent types – key things to consider or look for in a wetland design
  • Design steps including relevant technical guidance
  • Construction and establishment of natural systems
  • A new challenge: broad scale wetlands – an application for rehabilitating landscapes and environmental offsets

The training will be supported by a selection of case studies and will have an emphasis on wetland design in the Queensland policy context.  At the end of the training, participants will have a greater understanding of wetland function, the use and limitations of wetland systems and a collection of resources and materials for designing and assessing wetlands and other biological systems.
