Abstract:

This technical note examines hydraulic structures presently being used in wetland design. The examples given will provide insight to structure types being used in the field and how well they are succeeding. The design and construction of a wetland site requires knowledge of the wetland type or functions that are to be achieved by the project. Examples of functional objectives include waterfowl habitat including food and nesting sites, flood storage, water treatment to remove undesirable materials, sediment trapping, and ground water recharge. Also required is a knowledge of the operation, management and maintenance resources that will be available during the life of the project.
