Re: Nice and quick overview about constructed wetland's historical developments, by David AUSTIN, USA

That is a nice brief publication on wetlands' history. I think, USEPA has been instrumental in the use of wetlands.

The attached publication, a joint publication of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Protection Agency,Army Corps of Engineers, Fish and Wildlife Service, and
Natural Resources Conservation Service, is a guide on wetlands, and goes on to define the basics, like, what are wetlands, why restoration is necessary, importance of wetlands, etc. It is an interesting publication and, would be useful to the new users in the field.

to my surprise:

"...The first engineered treatment wetland design is found in a 1901 United States patent. Although the patent is surprisingly sophisticated, no record has been found showing that it was ever built. ..."
