Retrofitting a water quality control structure to maximize pollutant removal efficiency for an existing wetland
An existing seven acre wetland captures stormwater runoff from a 505 acre watershed located in Fort Collins, CO. The wetland has shown measurable pollutant removal with its current outlet design, but the pollutant removal efficiency could be increased through the installation of a water quality control structure (WQCS). The wetland is bounded by an adjacent park, stream, bike path, and building limiting water quality improvement options. Thus, the wetland dimensions cannot be altered. The objective of this project is to design a water quality control structure that would maximize pollutant ...
