Integrated Constructed Wetlands (ICWs)
Integrated Constructed Wetlands (ICW) provide a joined up approach towards water and land management, providing multiple benefits for both people and wildlife.
ICW's have been demonstrated to effectively remove a wide variety of chemicals, microplastics and pharmaceuticals throuhg natural processes. In contrast to hard enginering solutions, these sites also provide many other benefits, including carbon capture, a perfect habitat for wildlife and an area for local communities to connect with nature.
Norfolk Rivers Ecology are experts in assessing the feasibility of these wetlands to meet specific targets, alongside designing, delivering and managing Integrated Constructed Wetlands. We have a strong track record of successfully delivering such projects around the UK for a wide range of clients, including water companies, housing developers and private companies. See our Ingol Integrated Constructed Wetland page for further information.
Supported by a rapidly growing base of scientific evidence ICW's have gained wider support in recent years.
