This workshop is designed for school administrators, facilities managers, municipal officials, environmental commission members or Green Teams who are exploring implementation of green technologies at their sites. The constructed wetland at Duke Farms is one of the very few natural wastewater systems in the state that use natural processes involving vegetation, soils and microbes to treat wastewater.
