As part of an integrated multiple reuse program reclaimed water is discharged to a system of natural and created wetlands before ultimate discharge to a river. A research plan bas been required to determine the long-term effects of reclaimed wastewater on the wetlands, their waste recycling efficiency and the impact on downstream waters. This paper presents results from three years of this monitoring and research program which show the wetlands reuse system to function well, with no adverse impacts on wetlands or receiving waters.
