Wetlands By Leah G

What is a wetland ? A Wetland is an area of land with soil which is saturated with moisture, you can find shallow pools of water sometimes swamps and it’s a natural habitat to native animals. There also is a cleaning part to clean and provide beautiful clean water! The water inside a wetland can be several metres deep. The types of water found in wetlands are saltwater fresh water and brackish.:

To stop contaminated water or litter going down the drains into the river. Reeds help clean the water. But we need to make sure that the water is not contaminated in the first place.:

A natural wetland is a billabong. which is a body of water that can have a dry phase, mostly dry in Mildura in the summer time and seasonally wet in the winter.:

What is the purpose of a natural wetland? Natural wetlands are important for maintaining a clean wetland for biodiversity.

What are the differences between a natural and man made/constructed wetland?:

W h at are the differences between a natural and man made/constructed wetland? Differences: A natural wetland is made up of water and reeds , with native animals making homes. It depends on mother nature, the weather, rain and so on. Constructed wetlands are made by man so it cleans stormwater water by filtering the water in a series of ponds and it provides animal habitats.

Why do we need constructed wetlands? To help protect natural living species of plants and animals :

The sections of a wetland:

The sections of a wetland In the Etiwanda Wetlands the sections are; Gross Pollutant Trap Storage basin Ponds-1-10 Pumping pool Cark park Bird hide One of my favourite features in the Etiwanda wetland is that it has a Pre-treatment of stormwater through Gross Pollutant Traps that remove solids.

Aquatic weeds can choke wetlands – what does this mean?:

Too many reeds can grow in the wetland that reduces water flow and the effectiveness of the simulated wetland. Cumbungi: Cumbungi is a tough plant that thrives in fresh or lightly brackish water of less than 2 metres in depth. The perfect condition for cumbungi to grow is water slightly moving . Aquatic weeds can choke wetlands – what does this mean?
