Wetland Assimilation

One of the most important environmental engineering services that Meyer Engineers, Ltd. offers is a process known as Wetland Assimilation. The Wetland Assimilation process involves pumping treated sewerage from an existing sewerage plant and disbursing it into wetlands. The technical workings of the process include compiling as-built data and calculations to determine flow velocity and pipe sizes, modifying existing pumps and piping, constructing headers pipes and discharge systems and telemetry controls of pumps. But the bottom line is that this is a great way to help our environment by building up wetlands.

There are two main benefits of Wetland Assimilation with sewerage effluent. First, it is a less expensive alternative to secondary treatment of sewerage effluent. Secondly, it increases the wetland area. This process is a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to help wetland areas to grow quickly and effectively. For more information on the benefits of Wetland Assimilation, the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality provides this reference. In addition, please see this reference provided by Comite Resources.
