  • A method of water filtration (Mainly just for nitrogen saturated rainwater runoff), that uses an artificially aranged wetland
  • Can be anywhere from the size of a small garden, to the size of a real wetland (Some southern areas of the USA are adding these to parts of rivers (especially around agricultural areas and flood zones, this is partially because these areas WERE wetlands (cough cough florida) but all in all it has been working well in the areas that have implemented it) )
  • May also be useful as a Greywater Treatment method or a Blackwater Treatment method, although it must be designed for this, and have the appropriate precautions taken
