In the 1960s and 70s, it was recognized that phosphorus runoff was negatively impacting the Everglades Protection Area. By the mid-80s, one solution was use of constructed wetlands, called Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs). STAs biologically filter the water flowing into the protected area, reduce phosphorus, and improve the ecosystem services of the soil and plant life.

The “Soil Processes and Performance in Constructed Wetlands” symposium planned at the Managing Global Resources for a Secure Future ASA, CSSA, SSSA International Annual Meeting in Tampa, FL, will address this important topic. The symposium will be held Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 9:30 AM. The meeting is sponsored by the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and the Soil Science Society of America.
