Reducing Microbial Concentrations with Stormwater Retention Ponds and Constructed Wetlands

Vincent D. Reynolds, MBA, PE

Stormwater runoff is responsible for polluting several bodies of water with pathogens. These pathogens can be the cause of several illnesses when exposed to humans. This course will provide the reader with the study of the fate of indicator organisms in the Stormwater runoff entering and exiting constructed wetlands and retention ponds as performed by The National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL). Pilot scale studies as well as bench scale studies were performed that represented larger field-scale systems to determine the mechanisms that aid in reducing the indicator organism concentrations.

This course will provide the reader with the practical knowledge of the performance of Stormwater retention ponds and constructed wetlands in reducing microbial concentrations. Environmental protection laws will also be discussed. Case studies are also provided to illustrate to the reader how the information learned has been used on pilot and bench scale studies.

This course material is based on the document “Performance of Stormwater Retention Ponds and Constructed Wetlands in Reducing Microbial Concentrations,” as published on the website of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
