Reserve Wetlands Assimilation

The Reserve Wetland Assimilation project consists of discharging treated sewer effluent from the Reserve Oxidation Pond into the Reserve Relief Canal Wetlands. The project will serve three (3) main purposes:

Design includes modifying the existing pump station, 5,000 LF of 6” sewer force main, 4,000’ of distribution line, and an earthen berm around the perimeter of the wetlands. The pump station will have the ability to pump to the wetlands or pump to the Mississippi River to allow “pulsing” to adjust the optimal nutrient levels in the wetlands to maximize marsh creation.

Start Date: January 2015
