WRRI-Sponsored Research Recommends Continuing Use of Wetlands to Treat Agricultural Drainage

Record #:
Researchers at North Carolina State University recommend that agricultural producers in coastal North Carolina continue to use wetlands to filter sediment, nitrogen and phosphorus from water drained from agricultural fields despite evidence that artificial flooding will change the nature of wetland forests. Their recent studies suggest some guidelines for more effectively using wetland buffers to remove pollutants from agricultural drainage.
