Abstract

Treating feedlot runoff using a soil infiltration area followed by a small constructed wetland can significantly reduce contaminants in the runoff. An infiltration/wetland treatment system has been monitored for three years at ISU’s Beef Nutrition Farm near Ames. Overall contaminant concentrations in the wetland effluent are typically 20% or less than the initial runoff concentrations.
