Abstract

Four treatment frequencies of wetting and drying cycles, hydro-periods, were compared to a control where continuous wastewater flow was allowed in treatment wetlands to optimize wetland macrophyte (knot grass) growth. Net biomass production per unit area in the wetlands was recorded and a model developed to predict cumulative growth per unit area of wetland down the cell as a function of the percentage of time inundated with wastewater during the treatment cycle. The model developed as a function of the distance in the wetland predicted knot grass growth per unit area very well with an R 2 = 0.95 that was highly significant (α = 0.001).
