Hello ground water/ground-water/groundwater experts and others:
It looks like I'm about to have a crash course in constructed wetlands this
year. Could the following scenario (nitrate contamination of drinking water
wells, RFI quoted below) benefit from constructed/restored wetlands
treatment? And, could those of you who respond(ed) regarding the
nitrate-in-wells problem please send me a cc: as well?
Thanks in advance,
