Minnesota: Wetlands in Remediation Activities

Phytoremediation is the use of plants and/or trees to treat contaminated soil or water on-site. Wetlands, one aspect of phytoremediation, can be particularly effective at removing excess nutrients or other contaminants from water or soil. Two types of wetlands have been used by the MN Pollution Control Agency in remediation projects and are described in this document: restored and constructed wetlands.
